I have a Good Backhand and Forehand. What happens when i lob a ball i get back off the table a bit and try to drive or smash on the return but my footwork JUST STOPS ANY DRILL??

Hi Saksham,

It is important to practice the basic movements of footwork and get comfortable with them.

Take a look at our lesson on the Footwork Basics for some help with this.  If you can get these right then movement around the court becomes a lot easier.

That's strange. The iPad works fine for me. Are you able to watch embedded YouTube videos on other sites?

Thanks anyways!
