I followed your advices in the lesson on anticipation I try to watch the ball well. The problem, though, is that if the ball is fast, I can only react if the ball is coming right into my hitting position or nearby. The typical situation is that I stand in my backhand corner, I see that my opponent is going to topspin to my wide forehand, but instead of moving to forehand, I'm mesmerized by the ball and actions of my opponents, and move when it is too late. How can I cope with this?
If you practice your footwork movements more you will start to make those movements more automatic. So as soon as you recognise the ball is going out to your forehand you will start to move there as well. This is all part of the development of the game. It sounds like you are starting to watch the ball well now which is great.
