Dominic Thiem’s Chip and Charge Return of Serve

The following video was taken at US Open 2018. It shows Dominic practicing chip and charge return of serve. In most cases, this is very useful for returning second serves. Since Dominic has one-handed backhand he is very familiar with slice backhand shot, which is very efficient in his case.

  • Make sure you have enough space to hit slice return of serve
  • Follow into the court, split-stepping on the service line
  • Finish the point with the high volley
