Having good control on a volley may be more important than any other aspect of the stroke. In today’s lesson, Brady demonstrates how he controls his volleys in order to keep his opponents on the ropes.

    What about stroke length for balls with more or less spin?… to go along with balls with more or less pace.

    Very useful tips.But who is the little girl in the background hitting the ball so hard and consistently?? I think we are going to see more of her in a few years?

    Another very informative video. An eminent ladies doubles player ( winner of many grand slam titles) has said that a common fault of recreational player at the net is that they try to change the direction of the ball. To avoid making many errors, she says that the majority of volleys should be aimed cross court. Please could I have your thoughts on this.

      Not changing direction is a good principle, but certainly not the law. Also hitting down the line is very often not changing direction of the ball if your opponent hits down the line as well.

    HI Brady, Excellent video and instruction as always. I use a foam arrow placed in the yoke of the racket to help students visualize the racket direction and path. Also, many players don’t set their racket and wrist in an upright L-pattern, going for a more arm/racket linear pattern (like a ground stroke) and they swing at the volley rather than a more controlled ‘push’ (I liken the volley motion to pushing a screen door closed, rather than swinging). Thanks again. Jim S.
