can't do this in park tennis... recs just can't cover this much ground.. you stand 8ft behind you will see drop shots all day long.
no 1hb can hit rising balls consistently standing 2ft behind the line, not the guys i have seen in real life, not the guys i have seen on TV.
You have not played with one of my hitting partners he can hit a beautiful one handed backhand standing a foot behind the baseline. Even on a heavy deep top spin shot he will rip a one hander right off the rise.
