Two-leg shots are often used when the opponent makes a ball and you’re standing close to the net. At that time, you often have to chase the ball towards the back of the field and there is no time to rotate the batter as usual.
At that time, you will still stand with your back to the net and hit the ball through your legs. This type of attack was first performed in professional matches and people considered it a performance rather than a simple action. But now, this is a very common shot. And players claim that it is a very effective way to save the ball when it falls into a situation that seems to have given up.
You need to choose the right time to do this type of ball, otherwise you can become a laughingstock for viewers. In order to successfully block a ball across the legs, the necessary condition is that the ball must be in the middle of the field, when you will have enough area and it is easy to put the ball to the other side of the net accurately, because you are chasing balls from behind. Also be patient to let the ball fall low when you approach because if the ball is still too high, you will still have other ways to handle it. And trying to hit the ball over your feet can make it all end as you wish.
The secret of this blow is the ability to control the hand skillfully. When you chase the ball from the opposite direction, you will have to make a backhand. If you choose the usual shot, chances are the ball will not fly as expected and bounce off the field a second time. When the ball starts to bounce off the ground, raise the racquet arm in a way that looks like you’re about to hit the racquet.
Clearly define the moderate opening of the feet, so that the distance between the feet is equal to twice the length of the foot, enough to let the ball in the middle and the racket also swing easily. Turn the racket down and hit the ball hard. Turn the wrist slightly to the opposite side to adjust the ball’s flight direction, otherwise it will not be able to fly over the net. Another trick will help you to be quite practical, which is to lift the left foot off the ground (for right-handed people), when making a stroke.
At this point, after you’ve finished hitting the ball, you will probably be watching the situation. Imagine, then the opponent will go to the net and make a small volley. So what you need to do is not wait for the audience to applaud a winning ball, but instead turn around and move upwards, gently making a stroke along the edge, overcoming through the enemy standing on the net.
