Points to look for:
- The player is now watching his opponent at the other end of the court, rather than the flight of the ball.
- The hips, waist and shoulders have almost completed turning back to the left.
- The hips, waist and shoulders are a little higher than the original ready position.
- The racket has moved a little more forward and further upwards. The tip of the racket is now pointing upwards, in what is called the salute.
