"Volley low balls deep. Angle high volleys."

This a quote from my book, THE LITTLE GREEN BOOK of TENNIS.

Recently my Son questioned the reasoning behind this “principle “! (It is more difficult to “angle” low volleys. Wait for a ball you can volley down for the winner. )

His response made a lot of sense . ” If you volley it deep the players today can get to it and hit the closer ball by you at the net. Additionally, net players now CAN angle many low volleys, some soft and with almost the same effect as a dropshot. Thus creating a much larger distance to cover to make the passing shot.

Tommy Paul’s angled low forehand volley is a good model.
