Orange players need to develop greater racket-head speed to control the ball with improved pace, spin, height and depth. Tactically, orange players are developing high percentage patterns with the forehand as a weapon from the baseline and improving net transition skills on a larger court. Orange players are progressing in their ability to hold serve with greater spin, power and control and are learning to read the serve and adjust the size of their backswing on the return accordingly.
