Might even think of it as making contact "above the ball's equator". This keeps it from "floating" higher than you want.

Much like a high backhand volley, you may have to either just "stop" the racket face at impact, or really do some fancy racket face manipulation after contact in order to keep the face from closing. If you *do* let the face close, then it was probably closing too much at impact, and it probably went into the bottom of the net.

Why does your signature say "pounds per square inch"?
