Here in the video we see a great example of a serve and volley situation from Youzhny, who serves to the “T” from the ad court. He split-steps before he reaches the service line as the opponent makes contact with the ball and hits his volley about at the service line. Most player will hit a deep conservative volley in this situation to reach a better position at the net and try to finish the point then. Instead, Youzhny hits a great drop-volley to win the point.
