High balls are still a nightmare and that will never be fixed unless I grow 8 inches.
I have the same problem, and I donīt think itīll ever get fixed. Every time I hit my backhand shoulder height, I end up hitting it short. I canīt even imagine what it must be like to try hitting it against someone like Nadalīs high topspin forehand...
