It just takes a bit of practice, and I would know! I started out as a S&V guy, now I am an aggressive baseliner. It took me about 2-3 years of quite hard work to get where I am now, and even then I'm not really an amazing baseliner.

Its interesting. I suppose everyone is different and for some people a backhand is hard, and for some volleys, etc.

Anyhow volleying is easier at least for me. But thanks man maybe i should just be a serve volleyer. Imagine how you would be if those two years were spent on improving the sv game you had.

Though i get it. Its like Palpatine talking about how to know the living force you need to embrace a larger view, not the narrow dogmatic view of the serve volleyer..
