    Brent…… Like the detailed explanations…… Most Nowaday players want to see how is done and less explanation……. But the science of what the drill accomplished is the key !!!!!…… Good Job ………

    5 star !

  11. kpham2600 on August 30th, 2009 3:31 pm

    I happened watching similar YouTube Video and the guy there said stepping with the right will cut down the reaction time. I think if you keep weight on the stepping foot then you are more balanced and it is easier to volley. It is similar to ballroom dancing which requires you need balance.

  12. Raul48819 on August 30th, 2009 3:31 pm

    A teacher told me to crossover with the left foot on ball to the right.

    But this video does it with the right

  13. rudysdark on August 30th, 2009 3:31 pm

    same here

  14. anthonbreu on August 30th, 2009 3:31 pm

  15. DannyMac100 on August 30th, 2009 3:31 pm

    wow, i just realized that i almost ALWAYS reach for the volley shots. now i know what i need to practice. thanks, brent!

  16. DonGiovanni008 on August 30th, 2009 3:31 pm

    I have a question. Which grip (semiwestern or…..)you must use for the backhand volley and forehand volley.

  17. polipoli7 on August 30th, 2009 3:31 pm

    thanks 4 d tip!

  18. gabel159 on August 30th, 2009 3:31 pm

    well when your at the net you have half time to react.. your instinct will tell you to reach for it in a fast paced game.. good though..

  19. fnkg on August 30th, 2009 3:31 pm

    right on my weakness when volleying

  20. payneismyblade on August 30th, 2009 3:31 pm

    Good tip, thanks.
    I seem to put my arm out just like you said not to and it makes it hard to control.
    I will practice this.
    Thanks

  22. webtennis on August 30th, 2009 3:31 pm

    Thanks for your kind words oleman91.

    Gotta stay on balance as you move for good stroke mechanics, better visual contact with the ball, and your ability to move to your next desired court position… Brent

  23. oleman91 on August 30th, 2009 3:31 pm

    very great tip man thanks didnt really think about moving the foot towards the ball.
