I'd like to ask the coaches and advanced players out there, where should a fast drop land to be considered proper technique? I execute my drop shot by contacting it relatively high and in front of me, but I slice around the outside of the bird with a lot of racquet speed. My drops are pretty fast, and they clear over the net quite low, but they usually do not land that close to the net line, usually around about the service line to 1 foot past the service line? One of my friends says that a good drop must fall short of the service line to be considered good, but I can't perform this unless I slow the drop down, losing the speed. Is it possible to execute, with enough practice, a fast drop that still lands short of the service line? How can this be done? BTW, I am 5'7" in height.
