Mid-Court Put Away- Flat or Spun, Swing up or down? I've had somewhat conflicting advice from two college-level player/rookie teaching pros on high forehand putaways from the service line area. The first guy advocated setting up the feet and swinging down on the ball hitting it flat, and this is indeed a hittable shot from just in front of the service line. The second guy advocated swinging down on the ball, but with some underspin and continuing to move through the ball while closing in on the net. I asked the second guy about the conflict and he said the flatter shot was more of a singles shot and the cut shot was more of a doubles play. Do you guys have any comment on this? On high putaways around the service line, do I swing down and hit flat, or do I cut the ball. Also, are there mid-court putaways (maybe the chest-high ones for instance) that beg to be brushed up the back with topspin.
