Alize Cornet’s Baseline Drill

The practice was recorded during US Open 2017.

  • Alize Cornet is staying at the baseline while her practice partner is volleying
  • Player at the baseline (Alize) is keeping her backswing short and compact, hitting most of the balls on the rise
  • For this drill, it is crucial for the coach/practice partner to be volleying (therefore the rate of balls coming back is faster)
  • The drill should be performed at every practice for about 10 minutes.
