Return of tougher serves is hurting me. Tips?
I'm in a 4.0-4.5 club league. When I'm up against the 4.5 guys, I'm losing way to many points returning serve. Their serves come in faster, kickers are a big problem for me thats for sure. If I can get past their serve, I can hang ok.
This is indoor, the lighting is good...as good as can be expected. Outside in natural light I do better which is part of the issue I think.
I seem to be a little late. Mis-hits and probably trying to do too much with the ball.
Mainly, I'm just not used to these serves. I think if I could just practice returning these serves for an hour straight, I could get a handle on them. Since that doesn't seem feasible...any other ideas?
