As we know, the technique we employ on any given shot depends
on a range of factors such as:
- Opponent's court positon
- Our court position
- Ball we are receiving (level of difficulty - easy, medium, tough)
- Our shot intention (defend, rally, attack), and how to choose to do so.
Score, environment and court surface may even come into it.
See here a great example of Everyballer Amelie Brooks transitioning onto an 'easy' slower ball from a mid-court court position to play an attacking forehand volley into space. Great example of good footwork, loading on right foot then then transferring through onto left foot through contact (note left foot lands after contact) to ensure weight has been transferred and Amelie is now in a great net position should ball come back. This volley would be in contrast to her receiving pace, when already at net and defending.
Nice skills in this situation Amelie.
