Are you struggling with the volley in general?  And are you also referring to the groundstroke slice or serve slice, volley slice?
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I was just being fresh with you. Nothing personal --

Anyhow, on all of my volleys I use wha'ts called a continental grip. If you look it up on about.com they have really good descriptions of all the grips but generally, you just pick the racquet up as if you were "shaking hands with the racquet" or as if the racquet were a hammer and you were going to hammer a nail into a wall.

Like I said, try about.com if you're struggling with that.

You pretty much want your elbow to be about 6 inches fro your body when you're extending for the volley and you want to "open" your racquet head when the ball comes. And just gently making a diagonal "high to low" motion with your racquet.

Its kind of impossible to explain over the internet but I hoped that helped.

No, not harsh at all.  I have to hit the sack, I will write some on this in the morning.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Hit me with some more information on your slice shots.  Are they stay low or getting too high?  Do you feel like you are chopping at the ball?  I recommend the continental grip for all slice shots and volleys.  Here is a grip article, best I have ever seen.  http://www.tennisserver.com/turbo/turbo_97_10.html

As for your volleys, here is a list of volley articles:

Give me a little more specifics and see if I can be of a little more help.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Just make good contact and `chip`the ball back.  No need for a big swing.
