Hey Guys! Happy Friday to you all! Are you a fan of Nadal’s forehand when he is pushed back and he has to defend aggressive? Do you want to know some of the concepts that you have to apply to be able to hit that forehand? If the answer is YES, then you have to keep reading and watch the amazing video I prepared for you!

If we can describe a match as a “war” of strokes and strategies, we also could say that the goal of both players is to avoid hitting a short ball because it would allow your opponent to come in and or either hit a winner or a very good shot that will put you in defense mode. Now, what if you become an expert in defending heavy & deep balls so you could come out of those situations where you find yourself 3-4 steps behind the line being very aggressive and actually change from defending to attacking with just one ball?

Well, that is the main reason of this video. I have seen a huge number of recreational players (all the way from 3.0 up to even 5.5 players according to USTA rating) struggle with this ball causing them to lose many points because they find themselves playing against other players that are very good in playing deep balls. I made all my players become experts on this kind of balls with both forehand and backhand implementing drills focused 100% in real situations. The one you are going to see in the video is one of the basic ones (there are many different ones that match hitting with footwork coordination, cones are great for all of them).

This is only one piece of what a player that had the chance to experience my trainings said:

“While having the opportunity to play under Gaston’s instruction for a few seasons, my game has increased to a higher competitive level. Gaston stands out by using unique fun drill methods to enhance conditioning while also sharing his vast knowledge and play strategies.”

Those kind of comments motivate me every day to keep working with players around the globe to help them achieve their goals and make a jump to the next level! Thanks Brian!

Now yes let’s get to the video so you guys become experts in defending!
