Points to look for:
- The player simply had to drop the racket a few inches to have his bat back into the ready position. Note that the bat is pointing forward in a neutral position.
- The player has retained a slight tilt of the racket since he is playing against a robot, and knows that another ball is coming to his forehand. It would be preferable to have the racket edge pointing straight up, so that the racket would be in a true neutral position, ready for a forehand or backhand.
