http://www.feeltennis.net/how-to-deal-with-high-balls/ In order to handle a high ball to your backhand or forehand in tennis, you need to adjust in two ways: prepare higher and hit more across the ball. This video shows you Roger Federer and David Nalbandian in slow motion handling high balls on the backhand side so you can pay attention to their preparation and a different racquet path through the ball. The usual mistakes when dealing with a high ball to the backhand or forehand are hitting it down - which brings the ball in the perfect zone for your opponent to attack, or hitting it back up which sends a passive ball over the net and allows the opponent to dictate again. Hitting the ball horizontally enables you to hit with some pace and neutralize potential attacks.
http://www.feeltennis.net/why-serve-difficult/ If there's one stroke you're very likely still struggling with in your tennis game then it's likely the serve. You've been working on your serve technique for long time and yet you're nowhere close to the technique and power that the pros possess. A tennis serve is technically the most difficult stroke but there is one single cause from which many other challenges arise - and that's the Continental grip. As soon as you decide to use a Continental grip in your tennis serve, everything that you knew so far about the serve that made sense is not correct any more. You can't orient towards the court and you can't swing towards the target. The Continental grip changes everything by 90 degrees and instead of still persisting with the common sense approach to serving, you'll need to change. You'll also need to develop more power in the pronation move as only then will you be able to make the best of the Continental grip.
