Julian, in Landsdorp's world there are three types of balls from a net clearance perspective ( height of the ball that clears the net ). He drives his students to hit balls with a max 2 feet net clearance most of the time. then he calls USTA ball which is hit with a 5-6 feet net clearance. Then he calls the ACADEMY ball which is hit with more than 6 feet net clearance. all this is during a rally mode. basically his technique is drive the ball as hard as possible flat and deep. you do the USTA or academy ball only when you are defensive.
