Maskell once used the term to mean no contact on a serve (a "clean ace"), and that's probably what it always means.
Passing shots are tricky. Sometimes both players are up at the net, working with half-volleys and sharp angles. I'll count a winner as a passing shot in that case, so long as it's taken on the bounce. But does everyone count that way? I don't know.
This was one of the first matches I did, and I can't even remember how I did it then, exactly.
(And as one of the first I did, it's also more likely to contain errors on my part).
