The Straight Drive

 

The straight drive. This very important, yet simple, shot is often played wrongly.

As with the drop shot, many players angle the straight drive too wide so that it hits the front wall, then the side wall and comes back out towards the opponent enabling him to hit cleanly a choice of shots (Shot A).

This is particularly wasteful when you have a good opening.

The more effective shot is to play the ball narrower (Shot B). The ball will then reach the back of the court, ideally with the second bounce dying into the nick.

Played in conjunction with the cross court drive, boast and reverse angle, the straight drive is a crucial basis to a good tactical game.
