i know hittin the under the leg shot is dumb and being a showoff, but sometime i cant run after the lob sideways. it hard for me. so i would lke to know how to hit the ball under the legs. im not sure if it depends on how tall u r, because i was watchin the 12's nationals, and this kid who was about4'10 did the shot with out hurting himself. im 13 and 5'4. and i also would like to know. please reply

I've said this many times.. tennis is about looking cool.. if you can hit a shot that brings coolness to the game, than practice it!

The under the leg shot is just timing the ball so that it bounces between your legs.. Pros usually do when they're chasing a lob.

Yeah sure, and while you're at it, you might want to get the ice out.

Have you seen Tomy Haas or Goran Ivanisevic hitting under-the-leg shots? They look cool... Naturally, it doesn't depend on height, but timing ;)

Agassi does the best tweener (Between the legs)

federer has the best tweener because he waits till it drops low so that he can scoop under it

You got to hit it when it's just about to bounce the second time. Goodluck getting it on the run, that's nearly impossible without loads of practice.
