    Hi, can anyone out there point me to some good vids of pros returning slice groundstrokes, especially deep, high-spin offensive slice hit as part of a rally?

    Thanks!

    if you can't get off your lazy ass to search for what you are looking for, how are you gonna practice enough to learn it.

    High spin..deep? Those tend to be more of a defensive slice..the offensive slices are the ones that are flatter and skid through the court..well in my opinion anyways..

    Heres what you're looking for though.

    Oh well i read it wrong..to hit those balls back..don't expect to hit it back too hard, because you have no pace to work with, but hit through the ball more and hit a flatter stroke into a corner. Also make sure you space yourself away from the ball enough. People usually hit the ball into the net because they just brush up on the ball without hitting through it.

    It's pretty much like hitting a ball in which you just drop it and hit except the slice has spin on it..making it a bit more tricky.

    To get the basic idea just drop a ball in front of you and hit it.

    Just cause the pros can do it, doesn't mean you can.

    You should just straight up ask how to deal with them, though there are many threads on that as it is.

    Simply put: FOOTWORK!
