Recently I participated in a tournament. I was winning my opponent. Between the sets his coach said to my opponent "hit the ball towards his tummy(belly)". When my opponent started to target my tummy(belly) , I couldn't return the ball. I tried to step aside and use forehand topspin, but failed several times. Because the ball was very fast, I was late for milliseconds. About backhand, for me it is uncomfortable to use backhand topspin when ball comes to my tummy(belly). There is no enough space to do backhand topspin. What do you suggest?
One of the night things is to get a wider stance and stay low with your legs. This allows you to pivot and move out of the way of the middle ball easier. With a wider base you can transfer your weight from leg to leg and still remain balanced. This allows you to get out of the way of that middle ball.
We have a Premium tutorial on this as well. Dealing with the Middle Ball.
