    The point at 3:06, near the end of the point, he hits a flat forehand, then when Hewitt hits the short ball back, he hits a safer shot when coming to the net! Did his approach shots leave him before his big forehand?

    Hmm.. short ball near the net - obviously you need to hit it with more spin, unless it's high. Otherwise it will go in the net or go out.

    what IvanAndreevich said...you gotta hit with more spin and net clearance if it's a short ball. Just an understanding of simple geometry can help you understand why hitting another flat shot there would land it well long...
