The Drop Shot

 

Ideally, we would like to hit the nick but lets be honest none of us actually manage it very often. We therefore need to play the shot that will cause the opponent the most problems without putting ourselves at risk.

Most players angle the drop shot too wide so that it hits the front wall, then the side wall and comes out. This error enables the opponent to hit the ball cleanly in the middle of the racket, as in Shot A.

The more effective shot is to narrow the angle so that the ball hits the front wall, then the floor and just as the opponent reaches it, it dies into the side wall allowing the opponent to make contact only with the very end of the racket, Shot B.

It is therefore generally better to hit the shot too narrow rather than too wide. The ball is then drifting awkwardly away from the opponent rather than towards him. This forces him to play a weak shot which you can the hit deep (straight or crosscourt) again remembering to keep the angle narrow so that the ball does not hit the side wall.
