S.A.L. Return Vs. The Server Staying Back

Type:  Terminology
Level:  2.5 - 5.0
Participation:  None

TOPIC: In The Previdi System, the SAL ( Short, Angled and Low) Return is our first priority in attacking the opponents serves. When you play against a server who stays back it is especially effective because the server must run forward for a low ball and their options are severley limited. 

EFFECT ON GAME: When you play against servers that stay back, you can use the SAL return anytime you like. It will keep the server in a constant state of duress and take them completely out of their comfort zone. There's nothing that can be done to counter a well executed SAL Return if the server stays back.
