When the ball is positioned in the D5 Zone the player should not take a direct path to the ball. Otherwise, the player will present front on which may encourage the player to use the forehand instead of the backhand and vice versa. 

Instead the player should take a path to assist to get organised early into the classic side on position. This will encourage the player to use the forehand when hitting straight and similarly the backhand when hitting straight.
