Short High Balls
I know how to deal with high balls. I usually take it on the rise.
I've been having a lot more trouble with shorter/higher balls lately. They land to short for me to take on the rise. If I stand close to the baseline, it comes up over my shoulders. If I back up, I give up too much of my court position.
I know Agassi would switch grips to semi-western for higher balls, but I can't find myself to get back into my regular grip (extreme eastern).
Is there an easier way to hit a higher ball like what I mentioned above?
