Tennis question

How do you know when someone is hitting a flat ball. During Wimbledon they kept talking about Vee hitting her balls flat and I could not tell the differences. Also, how do you put spin on a ball?

Re: Tennis question

There are two ways to put on the ball. One is the angle you hold the racket at, the other is how you move it. If you're watching Venus, she puts 'topspin' ie forward rotation, on the ball by starting the racket low, and brushing upward on the back of the ball as she hits it.

'Slice', or underspin, can be achieved either by brushing down on the back of the ball as you hit, or by holding the racket at an angle so that when the ball bounces off it, it has a backward rotation. The latter is easier than the former.
