Default Re: Need advice on killing short high balls

The main thing on killing short balls is knowing what you want to do before you even hit it.

Like when you see the ball going to land in the service box, your mind needs to work to what you want to do, and move QUICKLY to get into position and hit an aggressive, flat shot.

Where exactly that flat shot goes matters on where your opponent is and what shot you are most comfortable with, but hitting it deep, in a corner, and closing the net intelligently is the best option.

When I say closing the net intelligently, it means to close the net so that your opponent has to hit a really wicked pass to win the point.

Cover the cross-court pass. Give him the line.
