I always have problem with the area of indecision. As a blocker, when my opponent plays continuously to my backhand, I have little problem coping with that. But if after three or four balls, he sends the ball to my forehand I always try to block with my backhand on the forehand position, thus 99% of the case losing the point.
Are there any exercises or advices that can help?
We cover a number of really good drills in Training Secrets Revealed that help you to switch easily from backhand to forehand or vice versa. You can perform set drills where the ball is placed to a specific place each time for example, one ball to the forehand, one to the middle and then one to the backhand. Then you can move on to random drills where you don't know where the ball is going to be placed. One example is where the opponent plays one or two balls to the backhand and then one or two to the forehand. This is great for improving your switching. It is amazing what a difference some focussed practice can make.
One last example can be found in the sample video clip of the PingSkills drill. It is the last video on the page.
Have a go at some of these exercises and let us know if it helps.
