Hello, on the last few days I've been playing more on the net, however I suck at it
, so I'd like if someone gave me some tips on how to approach the net properly, how to Serve & Volley, and the best time to do so... Thanks in advance...
Choose your player's playing style is Counter (for player like Federer, Sampras, McEnroe, etc.). The reason I recommend this playing style is that you can hit a lot of acceleration in a long rally,
So practice to hit a hard and flat approach shot (B1+B2) to the weaker side of opponent. CPU in this case usually response with a short ball in the middle of the court or some easy ball which give you the oppoturnity to move forward, then hit as hard as you can to the weaker side of CPU, CPU in this case usually response with a high and low slice trajectory (you will find it easy to volley) =>>>
Then quickly run to the net (DON't let your body too close or too far with the ball when volley) =>>>
Then press b2+down+right or left to perform a drop volley. It can be hard as first, but with litte practice you will feel very satisfied when successful (my favorite moment and my favorite shot is drop volley). And trust me when you do the drop volley the CPU most likely can't get to the ball (sometimes player like Nadal or Murray can chase down your drop volley but they will response with a ''kind'' ball and you will find it easy to volley. In very RARE occassion, they can lob or hit a passing shot if your volley's timing is not good.
I usually use b2 when perform a volley. It's much safer than b1 or b1+b2
If you can guide me how to upload a video here I will upload my net game against the CPU
Hope it helps and enjoy your game
