    Rebound backboard angle?

    How it, D. Slanted upward backboard at Alnany, next door to USDA. Terrible until you get used to it. Topspin shots come back high, deep, and slow.

    Different techniques with western grip. I play against a guy who uses one side of the racket, NO heavy spin, locked wrist, slow swing speed, excellent volleyer, good at low volleys, and plays doubles at high 4.0 level. Singles, low 4.0.

    Elbows same height on takeback, like a turret.

    On the run...arrive with closed stance and early prep. High...either slice or change grip a bit stronger.
