Yes, but can you see than Annacone is using the term "later" in correlation with "taking on the rise"? The earlier statement quantifies the later.
And yes, I am aware that "hitting on the rise" and "taking the ball early(in its flight)" are different ways of describing the same thing.
P.S. In what way is Annacone proven in respect of player development?
