Footwork Patterns

The above is from David Bailey (do check out his site) a noted Australian footwork coach.

“I was watching Alcaraz and believe the reason he is so quick and effortless is his use of anticipationary splitting steps……..see photos above

This technique helps him keep his momentum and flow as against a reaction split step where both feet hit the ground simultaneously and more of a split where the players has no idea where the next ball is heading”

Please revisit this article on Agility below – it is the same move shown within a video – at the moment I don’t have video of Alcaraz on the move – though I do have great footage of his serve!
