    On the Drop versus On the Rise and Contact Point

    LOL, I think my topic was either boring, obvious or unremarkable: I guess what I'm positing is that a descending ball (on the drop) should be hit with a more parabolic (upside down U) trajectory. In the course of play, perhaps a player is not always cognizant of contact point and a low skimmer...

    On the Drop versus On the Rise and Contact Point

    I am trying to isolate the culprit for the dreaded "skimmed ball" that goes 30 mph half way up the net after you just hit 5 nice rallies 60 mph with 5' feet of net clearance.

    Two-way miss- swing path too vertical?

    This is just an update video. He snapped back and beat a 9.21 UTR this weekend. At first glance in this video, he seems to be hitting well, but based on some of the prior suggestions, I'm thinking he has not completely fixed the high right shoulder??

    Would you agree with this? (sorry its 8 minutes but there seems to be some good stuff in this video I think)

    Two-way miss- swing path too vertical?

    Yes he might be over hitting. Just was looking for something more concrete to tell him then such a general statement This was a year ago v a 10.5 utr His typical play then:

    Two-way miss- swing path too vertical?

    Hence this post trying to seek out help! But yes thanks for the comments. In his defense he did win that match against a senior 7” taller and 35 lbs heavier that is hitting a big ball.
