Use the I Formation to Pressure the Returner

TennisGate Learning from the Best

https://vimeo.com/90314735 The I formation allows the net player to stand much closer to the centre of the court before the start of the point. It also gives him the option to move to either side of the court to start the point. This puts pressure on the returner who has to guess what the net player will do. In this clip we see Lopez crouching close to the centre line and then moving right to intercept the return.
