Famous tennis coach Patrick Mouratoglou explained the technique behind Novak Djokovic's forehand so that tennis enthusiasts can copy the technique and improve their own shots.
"Novak's contact point is perfect.
It is standing around 30 to 40 centimeters in front of his body. As you can notice, the racket head is not perpendicular to the ground, but with a 30-degree angle. This is because he applies spin to the ball. The motion of his right hand goes from down to up, brushing the ball.
His body is perfectly balanced and straight, even though he has slightly jumped. His left arm is standing higher up than the right one, bent, and his head is fixed on the ball. His upper body is in rotation, following the movement of his arm.
I'm sure that you can use many of Novak's technical performances to add them into your forehand," Mouratoglou says in the video.
Mouratoglou declared Djokovic the greatest returner ever
Around the start of March, coach Patrick Mouratoglou claimed that Novak Djokovic is the greatest returner not only in men's tennis circuit but in all history.
"Novak has the greatest return of all times. Even some of the best servers in the world have terrible statistics on his serve when they had to play him. 2: He (Nalbandian) had a unique style with incredible hands, and he was able to return opponents' first serve with topspin.
3: He (Agassi) is one of the greatest returners of all times. He had to face Sampras many times in his career and he was able to break him on many occasions. 4: Jonas was No 1 in the world in doubles, No 4 in singles, and his return was one of his biggest weapons.
5: He (Connors) had a special style and he was returning by jumping in the direction of the ball," Mouratoglou explained in a video uploaded on his Instagram account.
