This kind of goes with the other thread where we are arguing about whether it's okay to hit it in the direction of someone or not. I was playing our 3.5 / 4.0 drill today and it was doubles. It was "game point" for the drill. One of my opponents threw up a real easy overhead to me, only it was only about a foot past the net and I had to run to get underneath it. My other opponent was positioned right behind where this ball went, and as I ran under the ball to put it away I sort of assumed he was going to move or get out of the way, or at least back up so he could possibly defend against my overhead. But as I was looking up at the ball, I noticed in my Peripheral vision that the guy actually manned up and got CLOSER to the net and was standing point blank right in front of me with his racquet up in the air. I am 6'0" and this guy is like 6'3" at least if not more and he's a big time volleyball player. Anyway because of his height it was hard for me to not to notice what he was doing. Well not that there was much thought involved, I just went for the overhead anyway, thinking full well that whether I hit him or not I was going to the win the point. Everyone else in the drill (about 4 other players and the 2 pros) were watching this and they said it was pretty clear I hit a really good solid overhead but this guy just sort of stretched upward (he didnt jump) and stuck his racquet probably only a foot way from my racquet I ended up hitting the ball right into his racquet and it flew over my head. I even had time to still run it down and could of hit it over my shoulder for the save, but I couldnt believe what just happened. (actually the only indication I had that it even hit his racquet was the sounds coming from the crowd so I went after the ball too late) Has anyone ever seen anyone do that before? I havent. I thought the guy must of been nuts, and I couldnt believe he was doing it while it was going on.
