Racquetball Strategy : Racquetball Strategy: Positioning After Z-ServesDavid Frank August 31, 2019 3 Comments
We’re talking about your court positioning
after you hit a Z-serve. Very, very common mistake that people make is they do the full
spin after they hit the Z-serve, because it’s natural to make that movement. Everybody hears
that we need to look back and check what our opponent’s doing, but you can’t just turn
around completely and be facing. That’s a very common thing here, you notice the pattern.
You never want to be facing this way when a ball is being shot at you this way. If you’re
going to get hit, get hit in the back. So, here it is, the Z-serve, then they turn around
like this because they want to keep that motion of spinning, right? You never want to let
that happen, so, after you hit that Z-serve don’t do a full spin. Just hit the Z-serve
then turn this way. I’ve kept my back to my opponent, I’m looking over the shoulder, I’m
back in center court positioning, I haven’t exposed myself to get hurt. So, I’m here,
I’m ready for the return of serve, I’m right in the position I need to be, and I’m completely
safe. You know what I’m saying?
