A drop shot requires delicate touch, however used at the right moment a drop shot can help you win many points.
Watching the pros can teach you a lot about the finer points of playing tennis. But one area you won’t get much help with is how and when to use the drop shot. Pros are keen on hitting with power and ending points early, it is not very often in the modern game that you will see subtle drop shots.
However watching the Seniors World Championships recently, at Robertson Park, was a refreshing insight into the history of the game and how it used to be played, especially the drop shot. Amongst the Seniors tour the drop shot is very prevalent and will win you many shots, mainly because of the lack of agility of your opponent trying to retrieve them.
