A small swing is needed on every volley except a pure block.
But it has to be done with a conti grip and an underspin stroke, so the ball skids on landing, and underspin gives the depth control.
Very hard for modern grip players to learn to volley, what with SW forehand grips and 2hbh backhands.
You just gotta spend a few days hitting ONLY conti grip, EVERY stroke, and try to slice approach to just inside service line positioning.
