Don’t let them know what’s coming.
To me, disguise is the most important thing. For me, it’s a lot easier for double-handers to disguise because, with the single-hander, it’s easier to see what’s coming. Whereas with the double-handers, they normally take the racket back a little higher, a little bit more up, and then it’s a lot easier to just take one hand off, whereas I find it much easier to read other single handers’ drop shots. Disguise is the most important thing because if the guy sees it, everyone’s so quick they’re going to get there.”
Play it at the right time
“It’s true that you have to be ready to cover the drop shot, if they get it. But if you play it at the right time, when you’re inside the court, it’s a lot easier to cover the angle. When you’re too far behind the baseline you can’t cover them, so you have got to choose the right time to use it.”
