We constantly hear that we should attack the opponent's elbow, but just how precise does that attack need to be to be effective? In other words, how much to the left or right can we hit the ball and still make it hard for them to react. Also, is that distance the same on the forehand and backhand sides?
This position is actually quite small and always shifting. It is usually to the forehand side of their elbow because if it is to the backhand side it is relatively easier to move the bat over and utilise your backhand.
Each player has a different position depending on their own strokes. It is important to find where that is for your opponent each time. This will also change for an opponent depending on what they are ready for. If they are looking for a forehand then slightly to the backhand side of the elbow could also be effective.
