rising shots .....i once read an article in a tennis magazine about hitting the ball while rising its very hard to describe without an illustration so i made a crappy image
well as you can see the different points of impact for each shots, ok so basically as the ball bounces it still has some force into it but due to certain factors (gravity, wind resistance) as ball rises the force it originally had starts to weaken ( damn i wish i knew how to use that toning effect instead of just simply putting a lighter shade of blue to better emphasize how the force weakens)
now imagine applying the same amount of strenght when hitting those balls at those 3 different points (the black bar)
obviously hitting a ball with a half volley or a rising shot you can actually hit it much more stronger than you regular shot and i remember reading an article about hitting a ball on the rise and i found most of those hard hitting pros/tennis players usually use this
