There should be no wrist on volleys, the issue with FH grip on volleys is that the racquet face is too open on backhand volleys and too closed on forehand volleys. This makes low forehand volleys (most transition volleys) and most backhand volleys very difficult and forces a weak hitting structure.I sort of wonder if net game is not good because rec players who use the "Frying Pan" grip for serve use it for volleying also? I was theorizing that it's hard to do a put away volley (or even a regular volley) with that grip vs. a continental because you can't really get the wrist involved in the shot. Is that just me? For sure this applied to overheads also.
