Novak Djokovic practice session from the 2014 Cincinnati Masters 1000.
Footwork, footwork, footwork… excellent example of the small positioning steps we have to use for each shot…
And now a grand slam champ… and more to come no doubt!
He takes almost an inordinate amount of small steps.
Hi Rob: I’m checking my email tonight and thought you might take a look at this and more importantly his backhand face of the racquet. 🙂
Had a quick look. I like your comments about footwork and how he moves. I notice the standard basics on both sides with Djokovic – although slightly different shapes, he has a clean loop on the backswing, both sides, low to high on follow through, with elbow coming up and right hand towards left ear (f/h) and left hand towards right ear on the backhand.Standard basics….dare I say his solid technique is part of his success…I like your other comment too, about the volley with the strings facing the target and absence of follow through..something I am stressing all the time. I have a young Serbian down here in New Zealand, and I am constantly referrirng to Djokovic’s technique for him to improve his own. He is a leading player in his age group, sometimes beyond his age, and is all set to progress further into the international arena.
I wish you all the best,
This is super great …. How about video of Federer???
