It seems like you must have a very strong wrist to push the ball.
Is this a shot that is taught by a tennis pro? Is it mainly a double's stroke?
hell no, it takes no strength to push to ball back--they don't care whether it's hard, flat, short, deep, pushers just get the ball back and wait for you to make an error. Don't get pissed off and play them at their own game--always go in with a gameplan, try to execute it, and if it doesn't work then adapt. Thank goodness I haven't seen any of these pussies after I turned 18 and left the juniors. They used to piss me off in high school.
