    So, if you can attack the ball, you generally hit the closer player. If you must hit up on the ball, you can target the farthest player. What I’m curious about right now is, where exactly should I be hitting that closest player? I’m not clear yet on whether I should be trying to hit them in the feet, the body, or what part of them to aim at.

    If Steve had some power he could’ve smashed that thing to kingdom come and it would’ve been over! LOL

    Nice tips on where to attack, I had always been attacking the player further back, regardless the shot. The clarification of non-attackable ball goes to the back player, attackable goes to the closer player is great advice.

    I watched this several times. I also agree this was a super helpful video. So if I understand this concept correctly, then when the ball is not attackable, the best shot wether volley or dink should be cross-court ? Exception: a reset shot can be straight ahead but must land in front half or two thirds part of opponents kitchen. Can you think of other exceptions not to include unpredictability ? Thank you ahead of time for your thoughts.

    What happened to your voice narrations?

    Great information. Not a fan of the music, though.
