How to hit an inside-out forehand

Published by Tennismash with Todd Woodbridge

The inside-out forehand is an attacking shot used to take control of – or win a point. As Todd Woodbridge explains, there are a few things that are crucial in being able to execute a good inside-out forehand:

1. Get your footwork right: Load your body weight on the right side.
2. Plant the right foot as the back swing starts, giving the platform to drive the right hip through to impact.
3. The right shoulder turns almost perpendicular to the baseline, allowing the player to disguise their shot.
4. The racquet head should make contact with the outside of the ball.
5. When the body weight transfers to the left side, there needs to be forward momentum.
