Okay, how many of you have seen these westerns where they have the guy shooting at the other guys feet and tell him to dance? Well, this kind of a tennis version of that. I have Darren right close by me, and I'm right here. I can be closer to him but this is a good spot. So, I'm going to throw the ball at his feet, and he's just going to hit the ball, because one of the biggest problems people have is they don't know how to move there feet, but moving your feet isn't something that you learn and have forever, you have to train it so it becomes subconscious. That's why you'll see football teams, now these guys are great pros and they do there foot works drills like that. So, you always have to work on moving your feet so you can do that type of drill, but this one really helps. So, I'm going to throw the ball at Darren and you see how it forces him to move his feet, because I'm throwing it right at him. It's okay Darren, but don't get your revenge on me, I'm too close here. So, just hit that ball, and move those feet. So, you do this a lot you're going to get a lot quicker because, whether it's singles or doubles you're going to be faced with this type of shot a lot, right at your feet, and you have to learn to move them. If you do this drill on a regular basis you'll see that your quickness improves, your ability to watch the ball and prepare quickly proves immeasurably.
