It's quite annoying to be a volleyer now than before
And i am volleyer with 100% net presence, so i can imagine how difficult it would be for volleying with other styles. So please increase backward speed atleast at net. I see and I know my opponent will lob me when i move to net but i cannot move quick enough to hit a perfect smash and that really annoys me The last version was good at net although i had enough problems to volley well, but now its like a nightmare to go net and hit a backward smash which makes my net game exposed to my opponent
Making the lob a little less efficient could probably solve it.. Lets see what Manutoo says here.
