I don't get it. Everybody seems to hit the swinging volley now. Check out this video from the 86 French Open final between Martina and Chris. Chris wasn't really a net player, but watch her combination overhead/volley at the 1:30 mark. Then watch her hit a drop volley on match point. I miss seeing tennis like this. http://youtube.com/watch?v=A-SzAAACcJI I can see the swinging volley making sense from inside the baseline as a way to approach, but why do players hit a swinging volley at the net instead of an overhead?
