Last week, my pro decided it was high time I learned to do the footwork to hit an overhead even if the ball is over to my left. Up until now, I usually didn't bother to try to get in position for a lob headed over my left shoulder. Instead, I just hit a high BH volley and tried to angle it or place it to win the point that way. At the higher levels, this is no longer winning me points. I am wondering if you all have any pointers for me on this shot. For instance, when the lob goes up, how do you know if you have time to convert it to an offensive overhead rather than high BH smash or volley? Also, I noticed that pointing with LH and putting racket back right away didn't work well for me. I just never seemed to get into position fast enough to hit a good overhead. It worked better if I ignored all that pointing stuff and just scrambled into good position and then started the overhead preparation. Will doing it that way get me into trouble?
