I'm okay with it but we have limited court time and i like to get on with the match and not spend too extra time at warmup
Waste time? Seriously? It only takes a a few seconds to warm up. 3 volleys each side, three overheads. Done. It's a warm up not practice.
I can't remember a singles match where I haven't had to hit either a volley or overhead so it's worth it.
The dude who doesn't warm up his overhead and volley is the guy I'm drop shotting, lobbing, and forcing to hit volleys. Even if it takes a few games to finally warm up, I'll gladly take that edge.
