Why Dink Crosscourt

Since dinking should be a big part of everyone's game, the strategies of dinking can't be over-emphasized. Mark Renneson's video Get More From Your Dink! discusses the reasons why a dink should go crosscourt.

Mark analyzes some of the top players at the US Open and concludes that almost all dinking goes crosscourt for the following reasons:

Advantage 1 - the net is lower in the middle

Advantage 2 - avoids the down the line attack

Advantage 3 - the target area is bigger than the target area hitting down the line

The crosscourt shot is not without risks, however. An extreme angle shot opens the possibility of an around the post shot thatis almost impossible to defend.
