Former No. 1 and WTA coach Rennae Stubbs gives insight on how to hit a consistent volley. A good positioning combined with a balanced split step will help you be prepared for the shot. Make sure you stay on your toes, and since your contact point is out in front, “turn the shoulders ever so slightly and then step into the ball”.

One last thing to remember is to keep the back knee down to ensure good balance when punching the ball.
