You can practice adding and subtracting pace and spin, heights, and half volleys all with the same wall, and a couple of tennis balls.
Thanks. But I already do that.
You said you didn't make it through the whole video, but I hope you made it to 1:20 at least. That's when the guy practices volleys. Take another look. I believe if he'd get a bit closer to the machine, have the machine standing on a small table and slightly tilted, that would make a good volley practice. What I especially like about it is that it can help improve form (footwork, finish with left hand stretched, etc.) more than hitting on a wall, where you barely have time to react and have to shorten move you make.
Anyway, as you can see, it's seems like I'm already sold. I'll sure keep you posted when I try it.
