Points to look for:
- The player is continuing to watch the ball, and keep an eye on his opponent at the same time. If the opponent starts to move in quickly, the shot can be changed to an attack instead.
- The player is already in a good left/right position relative to where the ball will land, so he does not need to step to the forehand or backhand side. He will step forward instead to get close to the bounce of the ball.
