When a ball is coming at you hard and fast, you want to have your paddle out in front of you ready to block that ball back. But when the ball is hit to you a little bit softer and slower, then you have time to wind up and have a good swing on that ball. Make sure you put a little bit of topspin on the ball so you can make sure that ball dives down.
