|Fancy volleying like Henman?|
|Around the Academy:
The volley is the most demanding shot in tennis.
It is the most technically difficult, requires players to be exceptionally athletic and calls for lightning reactions.
By coming forwards in the court you are putting huge pressure on your opponent and also opening up all the angles - making winners much easier.
It can be a gamble though.
You have less time to cover the width of the court.
So if your opponent gets in a good shot only exceptional movement and reactions will get you out of trouble.
