Footwork is a matter of repetitive training. You need to practice the movements thousands of times. Start wit a lot of repetitive footwork drills where you know where the ball is coming. You can select from the many drills that we show you in our Training Drills free download.
As you get more comfortable with the movement you can start to do random drills which you will also find in our download of Training Drills.
One of the real keys is to get to a stage where your first reaction to seeing a ball out of your reach is to move your feet rather than your racket. If you move your racket first you will put yourself off balance and then you will find it even harder to move.
Take a look at our lesson on Footwork Basics. This will make sure you have the right movements and also talks about balance.
