Which stroke must be teached firstly to a person who never hold racket in his life? Now I try to teach him holding the racket correctly and just touch the ball. Because he misses lot when I give him very slow balls. And when he touches the ball, he does very small movement. It looks like block. When he returns the ball flies very high. Does he need to do longer stroke? Id.est do bigger swing and move racket forward more? And how must he touch the ball? Flat or smooth?
It sounds like you are doing a good job with teaching.
I think the first thing is to develop control of the ball just with a push or flat controlled hit. Take a look at our tutorial on The Most Important Skill.
Good luck with your teaching. Let us know how he progresses.
