But when you need it, it would be great if you could hit a nice half volley. In this episode of Tennis Quick Tips, I'll give you some great tips for hitting a better half volley.

It’s time for another episode in the Simple Serve Tips series! In this series, we’re getting up close and personal with the tennis serve. We all know that there are so many moving parts to the serve and it can be hard to get a handle on all of them. So, in this series, we’re looking at the entire serve picture – every little bit of it and how each piece can be improved upon to make your serve a better, more reliable tool in your game. So far in this series, we've talked about where you should stand when you serve, how and why to use the continental grip on your serve, what service stance to use, what the qualities of a good serve really are, and how to hold the tennis ball when you toss.

Today, we're focusing on the toss again. Specifically, we're going to talk about where to place your toss. You may just be tossing to the same spot over and over. But in this episode, you'll learn how placing your toss in different spots can really help you hit a better serve.
