    What does it mean when someone says to you, "you hit a heavy ball"

    I got that comment the other day and I didn't quite know what it meant.

    thanks in advance

    Good placement.
    You are stronger.
    Lots of spin.

    sorry - if you don't know what that means, then the ball is not heavy.

    Fast mover with big spin, that is placed short and in the sweetspot of opponent is called a SITTER ball.

    90 mph pace, with good topspin, if it's hit short NML and right to the opponent's strikepoint is NOT a heavy ball.
    A heavy ball needs some placement, besides speed and spin.
