Hi Coach - great website - I think you should have a section purely around tactics. For example I struggle against choppers - Any advice would be appreciated.
We will be adding more and more information to our lessons page and almost certainly we will include a section of tactics so stay tuned.
As for some advice against choppers, here is a couple of things to concentrate on:
I believe these two points are the most important in improving your game against defensive choppers. I often see attacking players hitting 5 or 6 amazing, powerful forehands straight into the perfect spot for a chopper to make an easy return. And then I watch a player who is good against choppers and even though they do not hit the same amazing shots, they win the points easily by using good placement and attacking the right ball by reading the spin.
Good luck Jonathan. Let us know if these tips help you out next time you play a chopper.
