question about split step
Will someone please clarify the split step. Sometimes when I try to split step, it seems like I don't get moving in the right direction after splitting and I feel like I'm just standing there. Am I trying it too early? When am I supposed to split step for the return of serve?
Thanks for any info.
Lift Up Through The Stroke

It is natural for your body to lift up during a swing. Lifting up helps accelerate the stroke or extend your reach. In some situations you may need to stay down to reach the ball, for example, if it is short or low. However, under normal circumstances staying down may trap your swing rather than facilitate it. Top players develop a feel for the best position for a given shot, whether it is lifting up or staying down."
