    I am puzzled. Check out the racket position on p.30, lower left picture, for a "below the net approach!!"I might be able to manage a chop or a sidespin chop from that takeback position- but a "go for an approach?' My below the net slice aproach has a takeback that is far lower so I can go through the low ball and hit a slice that does clear the net and has some pressing pace to it. Hmmm... Either I am the crazy one or I had better take some lessons or TENNIS is off the mark, AGAIN... Please advise...

    It is hard to say from pictures. My guess is his forward swing will not be that hard and he will "glide" down and up into the ball.

    I can definetly see your point. My takeback would be lower too. Some people can have that high takeback, quickly shuffle their feet, and glance the ball for an effective approach.

    Hard to tell from just one photo. I would love to see the sequence on his adjustment.
