I have very much enjoyed your video demonstrating volleying. However, I don't recall your hitting any drop shots during that match. Would you be able (time, etc.) and willing to record a match with CPU demonstrating drop shots? I would like to see you be able to go through that and not hit the wild drop shots that I keep encountering. In real tennis, the problems that I have encountered when I have tried drop shots are mainly two:
1) the shot does not clear the net,
2) the shot lands out, but not by much.
In TE2009, I can't remember a drop shot ever not clearing the net (I mean hitting it and just falling softly back onto the court of the one that hit it). In real tennis, I can't say that I have ever had the difficulty of a wild shot resulting that goes flying into the fence at a faster rate than even my hardest possible "non-drop shot" shot. In TE2009, even when I get the green indicator sometimes, the ball goes flying off much harder and faster than any other shot that I know of. I am sure that maybe my positioning isn't perfect, but there are just so many times when there doesn't seem to be the need for any movement where this shot results. I think that maybe it may have to do with how long I have been holding down the drop shot buttons. There are times when I will think that I am in the perfect position, and I will be ready for the drop shot well in advance. So, by the time the ball is within striking range, I have been holding the buttons for some time. Then, instead of just making very little swing and executing a drop shot, this crazy shot results. So, I would very much appreciate a demonstration on how to avoid this.
