I think it was Vic Braden that would have people hit through actual windows above the net.
Does anyone focus on height over the net and if so, how does one train/practice both mentally and physically without aids.
Height = Depth. You should be hitting the ball about the height of 1 racquet above the net. Should give you reasonable depth and will create a high percentage rally ball.
