A split-step in tennis is what you need to do everytime your opponent makes contact with the ball. Start in ready position. Ready position is the athletic stance you should in order to be prepared to hit a ball. Ready position involves standing with your knees slightly bent and your feet hip width apart. Hold your racquet head out in front of you so that you can go for every shot. Split step involves jumping off the ground slightly and landing on the balls of your feet. This will allow your weight to be centered and enable you to run for a ball in any direction. You do this when your opponent makes a shot. Then you can run after the shot. A split-step helps you avoid being on your heels or flat footed. Both of those situations will make it harder for you to reach for the shot. Notice how the professional tennis players do this all the time.
