While serve and volley has become more and more difficult to execute on the pro tour it is still absolutely a viable strategy for recreational level tennis players! How can you be successful implementing it? This three part series will show you.
In today’s video you’re going to learn the top 5 most important technique elements to being successful with your first volley after the serve (typically called a “transition volley”).
What elements will we be studying in Zimonjic’s technique?

- Weight transfer through contact
This is a lot to go over in just one video but all of the above areas are SO important to your success as you move forward towards the net.
