Overhead Smash Placement
Successful overhead’s come from practice and using the correct technique; being prepared, square to the ball, right grip, fluidness, reach up and follow-through. Funny though their is one important element several players miss, PLACEMENT. Most players hit overheads near the net, whether you play singles or doubles and they usually try and hit the ball deep, right at the opposing player. If they keep the ball in, it bounces fairly low, usually waist high for the opponent. College players and pro’s alike, smack the ball with wrist break and aim inside the service box or at the “T.” This creates a HIGH BOUNCE over the opposing players heads!
