What is the “Chiquita”?

This video is about the “Chiquita”…which is a great shot to use for any level of the game. Players just need to understand the benefit and how it can be used. The Chiquita is a good way to:

– Change the Rhythm of the Game.

– Hit into Space (when the net players are too far back).

– Move the Opponent forward so you have space to lob behind them.

– Force your Opponent to hit up or hit a short ball.

Practice using this in a match to perfect it and remember the key is to using the right speed (not too hard) and only go for this when your opponents are not too close to the net or they would find it easier to attack.

Sandy focused his attention from tennis to padel in 2010, learning the game with several trips and courses in Spain. His education in Sports Biomechanics, combined with playing and coaching at an international level (both in tennis and now padel) puts him in a great position to share his insights in the sport, hopefully helping others learn in the process.
