Instructors always told me to stand sideways (classic trophy pose) when hitting overheads. Yet time and again when I do this I completely miss the ball. However, if I stand at a 45 degree angle from the net (as I would when serving) I make the shot. Its just the 90 degree angle that somehow messes me up and I swing and completely miss the ball. Should I continue to try to stand at 90 degrees (sideways) and work on that, or just keep hitting with a 45 degree stance where I usually connect with the ball? What is it that makes a 90 degree stance so difficult for me?
