How can I learn to read the hitters when I´m in the back row?

Reading Hitters, Part 1

Becoming a great back row player takes time and practice, like any other skill. The most important factor in playing back row is the ability to READ opposing hitters.

The first step in learning to read hitters begins as soon as the ball has crossed over the net and into your opponent's court.

If you've seen the opposing hitters before, you should already have some idea of what they like to do. For instance, some players hit entirely angle shots. Some like to tip just over the block, some have a wide variety of hits in their arsenal, some are left-handed.

Having a basic knowledge of your opponent's hitting style will allow you to anticipate what they're going to do, so get down and be ready.
