What are some ways to pull your opponent off the court in tennis?

Pulling your opponent off the court means that you are making them run either far out wide or far back from the baseline for a shot. This puts your opponent in a defensive position. You always want to strive to put your opponent in a defensive position because then you can swoop in and take charge of the point. Here are some ways to pull your opponent off the court: Try hitting a powerful shot or a wide angle to make your opponent become out of position or pulled off the court. When this happens there is a great chance that your opponent will opt for a high percentage shot by hitting a high floating ball or lob to allow time to get back into position. Run quickly to the net and hit an overhead winner or make them run to the opposite side of the court for your next shot. You can also pull your opponent off the court during a serve. Hit a serve with a topspin or slice angle.

Can a tennis player cross over to the opponent's side?

"A player may break the plane of the net on a follow through from a shot as long as the ball was on that player's side of the court when the ball was struck. (The player can only reach over to play a ball in the situation stated in the paragraph below). The player in either situation may not touch the net, or the opponent's court with anything he wears or carries or with any part of the body. If the spin or wind brings the ball back over the net to the side of the player(s) who hit the shot, the opponent(s) may then reach over the net and play the ball. They may not touch the net or the opponent's court. This is the only situation when a player may reach over the net to play a ball. If the opponent does not play the ball and it bounces on the side of the player who hit the spin shot, that player who hit that shot wins the point." According to the rules, it is perfectly fine for the follow through on a swing of the racquet to cross the net as long as contact with the ball was on the player's side and not on the opponent's side, and contact was not made with the net by the striking player or their racquet. However, one cannot reach across the net to strike a ball that is on the opponent's side of the net except under on circumstance: If the ball originally bounced on the player's side of the net but due to back spin the ball wound up crossing back over the net, it is acceptable to then reach over the net and strike the ball prior to its hitting the ground as long as contact is not made with the net by the striking player's racquet or body.

What is especially tricky about the forehand underarm clear in batminton?

the forehand underarm clear is a difficult shot to play for many reasons. Firstly, because it is an underarm shot, the shuttle is likely to be below the net, therefore, when you make contact with the shuttle, it is going to go high over the net, making it easy for your opponent to smash it back down at you. Secondly, the lower you let the shuttle go, the more momentum it looses, making it harder the cear the shuttle to the back of the court with an underarm shot. hope this is useful.
