Hi Harikrishnan,

You can do some practice drills to help you with the crossover point. The most basic exercise to help with this is to get your training partner to play one ball to your backhand and then one ball to your forehand. You should play each ball back to your opponents backhand.

This drill will help you get used to switching between the backhand and forehand. Once you are comfortable with this you can do some similar drills to help you improve in this area. Some ideas include playing on ball to the backhand and then one to the middle. Another drill could be playing one ball to the middle followed by a ball to either the backhand or forehand.

We cover a lot of useful exercises and explain why they are helpful in our DVD Training Secrets Revealed.
