fine explanation, but not necessarily the meaning of volley in "tennis-speak".
I know the usual sense of "volley" in tennis, of course, but what does "volley" mean in that sentence then? Is it just a mistake?
I liked my explanation, it made sense with the "battling".
I've found an article about Gilles called "Slow road to stardom" - nice understatement.
I'm going to post it in the other thread.
