Taylor Dent knows a thing or two about serving and volleying—a tactic that's rarely seen these days but still used by players such as Roger Federer. When attempting the serve and volley, the key is to make your opponent feel uncomfortable.

When it comes to aiming your serve, Dent suggests “taking it out of the strike zone, making sure it’s high on the backhand, wide on the backhand."

The former world No. 21 explains that once the opponent is stretched out, the opposite court is wide open, giving you the perfect opportunity for a winning volley.
