Swinging volley—even though you’re hitting the ball near the net, you need to finish your swing. Extend through the ball toward your target.
For an effective swinging volley, you have to hit the ball at shoulder height, above the net. #findyourselfinthegame
The tennis world lost a strong leader, true gentleman & great friend today in ATP Executive Chairman and President Brad Drewett.
Swinging volleys should be hit from/inside the service line. As you begin to swing, butt cap of your racquet should point at incoming ball.
The swinging forehand volley is just a forehand—except the ball doesn’t bounce. You set up & swing the same way. #findyourselfinthegame
