Hi Reza,

The main thing is to think about the most efficient way to get yourself into position to hit the ball effectively.

Single stepping and side stepping are both good options.  You can also jump sideways with both legs and the other common one in the crossover footwork for when the ball is very wide.  This is like a running step to the side.

Take a look through our section of Footwork which will give you plenty of information to work with to get your movement better.
