Well, for my situation anyway. Basically in my area the average player is basically a 3.0 pusher, give or take a couple players. But see the courts are asphalt, which give low bounce and slow play, so after I hit a forehand to the corner they not only get extra time to get to it but it seems I have to wait about 10 seconds for the ball to come back which frustrates me. So anyway I started coming in off my serve, i'm about a 4.5 player btw, and found that the pace is quicker, more-so what i'm used to playing outside of here and I enjoy it more. Now I know enough about tennis to answer these questions on my own, but i'd like to hear your responses: What do you do off your second serve? I think I can still come in after a kick second serve or even a wide slice. (I'm a lefty) In returning do you still always try to get to the net every point, go to the net regardless or just play baseline for that game. This is aside from a weak second serve which you can come in off. Some DRILLS to make me a better volleyer, I havent serve and volleyed regularly ever, my net game would be my weaker part. Some drills exercises to help me? Thanks alot guys. I'm about 6"1, and pretty quick off my feet if that helps.
