Flat Or Slice Return Of Serve In Doubles Tennis

Type:  Tip
Level:  2.5 - 5.0
Participation:  None


TOPIC: When we're hitting the SAL return in The Previdi System, the type of serve dictates whether we hit a slice or flat return.

EFFECT ON GAME:  In The Previdi System we can control play with the SAL (short, angled and low) return. We need to choose the proper type of return ( flat or slice) in order to be consistent. On a flat , low serve we hit a flat return and on a high spin serve we hit a slice return. Making the correct choice will help us to be consistent on our returns as we make sure we always make the first two shots of every point.
