I tried searching for topics about 'moonballing,' 'high balls,' or 'high topspin' on the forums, but found nothing helpful. Everytime I look up a video on youtube, or see a player who has been getting tennis lessons for a while, I notice that their shots are more often nice topspin drives. Great shots. I'll refer to such players as A-players. One of the coaches in our school highly advocates the moonball. I know, I know, most of you might say that it is stupid and pusher tennis, so please refrain from posting such replies. I am aware of this side of the story. My point is when I watch A-players in a match, their drive shots do move through the court nicely, and this forces the players to move quickly laterally, or else the ball will move past them. When I watch moonballers play (the better ones that also use topspin and place their shots, not the dink-pushers), their shots land deep and push their opponents deeper behind the baseline. Personally, the topspin moonball works much better for me rather than hitting the topspin drive. From my experience, it's an effective shot, and I play against people who have taken lots of tennis lessons and have nice strokes. But my question is that if this is such an effective shot, why do pros not use it? In exception of Nadal, I don't know of any other player with groundstrokes that are anywhere close to being moonball-like. I'm pretty sure that they would still have some trouble facing high balls. Or is there something that I'm not seeing?
