I have found all the following plays a MAJOR roll in how my hits sound, sometimes it sounds like I'm blowing all the air out of the ball with every hit, other times it sounds like I'm playing paddle ball.
Things I've found that kills my ball striking: cold weather, heavy balls (due to moisture in the air or on the ground), heavy top spin from my opponent, and at nights I tend to lose some pop (but more a factor of cold weather)
But yeah, their are days I walk on the court and feel like I'm Roger Federer with the amazing shots I come up with
