Getting Exhausted With Forehand Topspin Multiball Training

Hi Alois,

I feel even one round of multiball training of topspin against backspin is extremely exhausting. The drills I am doing right now don't even require a lot of footwork and there is a substantial wait (close to 2 seconds) between two balls, even then I feel exhausted having played 50-60 balls continuously. None of the other strokes seem so exhausting. This makes me wonder if there is something wrong in my technique that I am putting so much effort into it or this is really the case. I will admit that I am not the fittest person, so some part of it can be attributed to that :)

Hi Abhinav,

There may be a bit of extra work going on.  The right foot working too hard and the shoulder being a little tight may lead to extra effort required to play the topspin shot.  If you keep focusing on staying relaxed, especially in the shoulder this will all get better.

Speaking of this...can my chopping style cause a disbalance between how my legs are working differently?
As my left leg is always much more tired.
