DS3 1) Force opponent to play a low volley (or, better still, a half-volley) while he’s still only about halfway in to the net. Execute a top spin or slice return 2) Follow your return to the net since the opponent is bound to hit a rising shot  which you should be able to putaway easily. 3) Putaway the return with angled volley to open court or down the middle. Level: Basic Keys to Execution: Anticipation of Serve, Good return to feet of opponent (top spin or slice), Good volley skills
