The net attack is heavy tennis artillery. All defense is supposed to crush. As such, it should be considered a decisive blow at all times, regardless of whether the shot is a plane or a smash.
Once you reach the net from the point at the first opportunity is given to get the racket directly on the ball. All the laws of the foot motion explained to the engine are the same in theory in volleyball. In practice, you rarely have time to change your feet to a specific position, so you avoid problems by throwing weight on the foot closest to the ball and pushing it into the shot.
Volleys come in two classes: (1) a low salvo made from below the waist; and (2) a high salvo, from waist to head. Unlike the classification of a strike plane, two styles are known as (1) deep volley and (2) stop volley.
All low volleys are blocked. High volleys can be either blocked or hit. Volleys should never be stroked. There is no on the low volley and very little on the high.
You will hear a lot of talk about volleys. A crushing blow is such a blow when a racket moves above the ball’s flight line, down and through it, and the angle created behind the racket exceeds 45 degrees, and many approach 90 degrees. Therefore, I say that volleys cannot be cut, as there is a tendency to throw the ball into the air from any blow. Slip shots if you want, or hit them evenly, since both of these shots are fired at a very slight angle to the ball’s flight line, the racket’s face moves almost along its plane.
Low volleys can never be hit hard, and because of the height of the net, they should usually be at sharp angles to allow distance for lifting. Any ball seen on a higher plane than the top of the net can be severely hit. The shot must be clear, sharp and decisive, but it must stop when it hits the ball. The execution should be very small. Most low volleys should be soft and short. Most high volleys require speed and length.
The “stop” volley is nothing more than a blocked shot. There is no force used. The racket simply meets the incoming ball and stops it. The ball bounces and falls by its own weight. There is a small rebound for such a throw, and this can be reduced by allowing the racquet to slide slightly under the ball upon impact, thus giving a return to the ball.
A player on the net must have ground hits to reach the position on the net. Don’t think that one serve and one discharge will be enough against first class tennis.
Try to kill your bursts right away, but if your shot doesn’t win, follow the cross of the ball and cover the straight shot again. Always force the man who tries to pass you to play the hardest shot possible.
Attack with your bursts. Never defend the ball on the net. The only defensive volley is at your feet when you enter. It’s a midfield shot. Volleys should win with a positioning above the speed, although the speed can be used on a high volle.
Closely related to volleyball, but in no way a shot on the fly, is the header. She is the great Bertha of tennis. It is long-range terror that should always mark. The rules of footwork, position and direction that regulate volleyball will be sufficient for the overload. The swing alone is different. The swing should be closely allied with the serving of the slice, the racket and arm swing freely from the shoulder, the flexible wrist and the racket give a slight rotation to the ball to keep it on the field. Overload is primarily a winning point for speed, as its rebound is so high that slow positioning often allows time for recovery.
Don’t blow up unnecessarily to hit aerial balls. Keep at least one foot, and when possible both feet, on the ground in a crash, as it helps regulate weight and gives better balance. Strike decisively and firmly to the point, if you wish.
Most of the missed shots are due to the eye leaving the ball; but a second class of mistakes is due to the lack of confidence that causes a narrow, heartless swing. Follow the shot from above to the limit of your swing.
The overload is essentially a double hit, because in the singles the chances of passing the man on the net are greater than jumping over his head, while in the double two men cover the net so easily that the best way to open the field is to hit a man back.
In crushing, the longest distance is the safest shot since it allows for a greater margin of error. Then destroy the crosstab when it is pressed, but pull your short lobs on both sides as determined by the man you are playing.
Never throw a lob that you can hit from above, as it forces you to go back and gives you the attacking position to your opponent. Never break with a reverse twist, always hit with a straight racket face and head towards the opening.
Closely connected to the overload, since it is the usual defense against any hard blow, it is the lob.
A lob is a high pitched ball that lands between the service line and the baseline.
The foreheads are essentially defensive. The ideas for lobbying are as follows: (1) give yourself time to regain position when pulled out from around an angle by an enemy shot; (2) to drop the network person and stop his attack; (3) to tire your opponent; (4) sometimes to win purely through placement. This is usually a volley from a small clean rally, and this is a slightly different move.
There is (1) a shock part, a strongly cropped spin that hangs in the air. This is the best defensive strike, as it rises high and gives enough time to restore the position. (2) Impact or flat blade slightly hit from above. This is a winning bet, since it does not give the player time to run around it, since it is lower and faster than the chop. When making this kick, start your kick as a drive, but let the racquet slow down and your face will bend up as soon as you meet the ball. This shot rarely needs to rise above 10 feet in the air, as it tends to go out with the ball float.
