I seriously doubt that women at the same NTRP level as men can hit better volleys, speaking in an overall sense. The men are typically much taller, stand closer to the net, poach better, and in general are more aggressive. Playing these no-bounce games or bouncing a ball off the frame don't prove much. Otherwise Bahrami would have been the ATP #1. What counts is what happens in a match. Likewise, I am skeptical about target practice competitions, like getting the ball thru a small ring. It may be an indication of basketball shooting skills, but I don't think that kind of accuracy is needed to win a real tennis match. The court is quite big enough.
