Thanks, Marius. I was wondering why my backhand volleys were popping up. :)

I'm just ribbing you a little here, Marius, your links are very useful and I appreciate them.
It's just that sometimes I get this image of you in a wheelchair (a la Dr. Strangelove) posting/researching all day in some darkened room. Please say it ain't so and that you do get the time to go out and play. It will make me feel better about Life. LOL

Isn't the finish on that backhand volley a little low in that picture? I thought you were supposed to go through the ball more with a step and punch forward - with the racquet moving parrallel to the court.

Yeah she has a really low finish. Most people teach players to always end "above the net" or towards the target. In that pic it kinda looks like her wrist is really loose and she's chopping down too much on the volley. I thought the same thing as you when I saw that series of photos in the magazine.
