By JACK KRAMER Written for AP Newsfeatures Volleying probably is the most difficult art in the game of tennis. I say this because there have been several very fine players who missed greatness only because they couldn't volley well. I recommend using the same grip in volleying as for ground strokes, forehand or backhand. i In volleying, the big thing to remember is to take a short back- swing and have a short follow- through. Unlike other strokes, you want to chop at the ball, punch at it, hit it firmly with locked wrist and arm acting as a unit. Loose wrist action or sweeping strokes will get you in trouble. Anticipation is a big factor in successful volleying. But don't make the mistake of try in? to outguess your foe unless such is necessary. It's usually better to cover the territory of the most obvious return. That way it will take an exceptional shot to pass you, and the odds are always in your favor. Always hold the racket in front, with the left hand ready to help shift the racket for forehand or backhand. This is also reconv mended for ground strokes, particularly in waiting for service. It's not usually sound strategy to go for an outright placement on the first volley unless you have a very good angle. Once you're in, vuiieying pusiuuu, yuu are in me driver's seat, so don't be overanxious. Keep the pressure on your opponent until he gives a high return to smash or a ball at the proper spot to angle for a placement. , In 'conclusion of this series, re member one tnmg. Keep your eve on the ball or you won t be able to do anything right. U.
