All-Court Game and the Volley: Keys to Modern Tennis Technique
In the "All-Court Game and the Volley: Keys to Modern Tennis Technique" DVD, Doug King continues his in-depth examination of the modern game, this time focusing on the all-court game and the volley. This DVD, which runs 1.5 hours, 50% more than the average instructional DVD, provides a detailed analysis of how to learn the all-court game by mastering the volley. You'll learn how underspin is the "other" spin, the foundation of the volley technique. Developing excellent underspin and volley techniques have been largely neglected in the modern game except for a few recent top players, including Sampras, Federer, and now Nadal, who were or are masters of underspin as well as topspin. To get to the very top of today's game, you will need to master both topspin, underspin--and the volley!
You'll learn how the volley is truly a stroke (not a punch or a block), a stroke that allows you to move forward into the court (hence the "all-court" game), opens up hitting angles, takes time away from your opponent, and puts pressure on him in a dozen different ways. This DVD also provides in-depth slow-motion analysis, showing you the subtle nuances of the volley stroke. Additionally, there are a number of innovative drills for you to practice so you can easily grasp and internalize everything you've learned. Finally, as in all of Doug King's videos, you'll find you've learned more than just how to develop a great volley. You'll learn the "feel" of how the pros play, and learn to become a master of the all-court game!
