Most people think of speed on the tennis court in relation to getting to the ball quickly after the ball has been contacted. That definitely helps a player be fast on the tennis court but it is not the most critical step of tennis speed. I define premovement has getting ready to move right before your opponent is making contact. This is a key element to speed on the tennis court.
This type of premovement is typically referred to as the split step. Most tennis players only think of split stepping when they are at the net. The split step should be used before every single shot that your opponent hits to make sure that you have a quick first step to every shot. It is very critical to use this premovement to have quick first step speed to every shot. Premovement is always done correctly when you are very light on your feet.
So to improve your speed on the tennis court, you don't have to run lots of sprints at the track. Just focus on timing that split step, and being light on the feet, and ready to move right before your opponent makes contact. This premovement should make you a faster tennis player and have you getting to more balls than ever.
