Hey guys! How are you all doing?? So, I know many of you might be thinking what is the Down The Line Mistake? (I like to call it DLM) or Why every time I play down the line my opponent comes back with a winner? Well, here we go!

In a few words the DLM takes action when we hit a ball down the line in the wrong moment OR from the wrong position in the court. This happens a lot, it happens at all levels, (YES! I’ll show you that even pros keep making this mistake) but they aren’t lucky enough to have me by their side telling them what to do. Just kidding!!!

Let me introduce you the DLM:

As you can see in the image taking from a real point between two beasts, Rafa is taken out of the court (he took 2 steps more to hit that ball in the video) and Roger (as I explain in the video below) took the 2 quick steps to cover the space and finish to the other side.
Now you might be like “Ohhhh yes, I do that a lot!!”. Well, not anymore, or at least let’s try to reduce that mistake as much as possible!

So, what should you do to STOP that mistake or what are the best options or variations in that moment to get out of that situation? Is there any drill to practice that? YEEES!! I answered all those questions and more in the video!! Let’s take a look at the full explanation, hope you enjoy it!!
