Boost Your Attack!

Read About 2 Critical Aspects of Attacking

If you are an offensive players, there are 2 aspects of the game that you need to master.
 
 
The first aspect is…   Creating the opportunity to attack first.  I hear many club players telling themselves throughout the night, “Just use your attack!”  Well that sounds nice, but how are you going to create the opportunity.  There are several ways.
1. Try to loop long serves
2. Try to loop half-long serves
3. Try to serve short and push short so that your opponent can’t easily loop first
