He said, “When I watch the college team play, they don’t hit with all the great ANGLES that these guys do. The college kids play like there are walls on the sidelines of the court and just try to only bang the ball straight ahead.”
As I continued to watch, I could see all the angles my senior friends were, in fact, using to win points. They came on return of serve, volleys, and even overheads.
So while I still believe the smartest play is to hit down the middle, we shouldn’t play “like there are walls on the sides of the court either.”
