In my process to improve, i have moved completely out of Counter Punchers realm and into a Shot maker (big word..raving a bit here). From the baseline or a a feet or two into baseline i can hit some real good shots and placement /depth etc. I do use good topspin. The trouble comes when the ball lands inside the service box. I almost always hit long if i try to hit shots from here. So what i always do is block the ball back until i get the ball around the area i am comfortable with and then unleash shots. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
