A Common Footwork Mistake When Stepping into the Ball

A common mistake on the groundstrokes is to close your stance by stepping forwards but keeping your foot parallel to the baseline. This position will hinder your rotation into the ball and will prevent a smooth opening of the hips. To correct this, make sure that your foot is pointing towards the net when you step into the ball. Pointing towards the side post is good enough. Stepping heel to toe usually helpt to take care of this problem.
