No, you said it right here:
For example, Sureshs uses the term "late" to describe the contact in relation to the ball (where a coach would use on the rise or on the drop)
The only way to read the sentence is to mean that a coach would use on the rise (instead of early) and on the drop (instead of late), the latter terms being what I supposedly used wrongly. I just proved you wrong.
Don't try to twist what you said by bringing in the hitting out in front issue.
