    for my slice, how can i make it not as high for ppl to smash? my racket moves from 9 to 3 n vice versa n it has crazy curve when it bounces on the ground. i wanna change it to a slice&dropshot, so any ideas? plz explain in the most detailed way. thx:grin:

    It your slice is smashable at the net, then you might be hitting up too much on the ball instead of chopping forward. I'm not sure what you mean by going to a slice to a slice dropshot. To me, they are very different strokes and don't replace one another.

    mmm i got no idea wat you're talkin bout with the slice drop shot thing. as for a good slice, the motion of your racquet should be banana shaped and not a straight cut at the ball

    You might try a more closed stance and make sure you get good extension in your swing; that is, you're not just chopping down, or across the ball, but swinging through it too.
