Return to Ready Position

The player has almost returned to the ready position.

Points to look for:

  • The player is once again pictured in mid-bounce, and has used the bounce to correct his over-rotation and turn back to his right and return to a neutral ready position.
  • The arms have continued to drop towards their ready position. The bat is in a neutral position from a left/right perspective, from which it is equally easy to play a forehand or backhand stroke. However, the player is holding it in a slightly forehand tilt, since he knows the next ball is coming to his forehand from the robot.
  • The player is now watching the ball coming towards him.
