Backhand and Forehand Volley

As Alex hits against the ball machine watch his split step between shots to be prepared for either a forehand or backhand return.

When you play the left view clip notice how Alex strikes the ball with a sharp angle to absorb pace, a useful drop volley strategy to more accurately place your shot.
