Coaches and Tennis Fans,
When teaching doubles strategy, #1 in my book is court positioning.
If you move correctly with the ball and your partner, you will force your opponents to hit the lowest % shots (which causes errors) and it will ultimately open up the court for you to hit the highest % shots.
In this clip :
1) You can clearly see side A is moving with the ball and covering 3/4 of the court leaving the hardest angle open. Side B didn’t move with the ball forcing a low % shot crosscourt.
2) Clear as day side A is out of position because the net player didn’t move with the ball leaving both sides of the court open.
