This man had been watching Wimbledon and was confused by the terms that the commentators were using.
In tennis, what is a dry and wet volley?
The caller had got his terms confused, and there is infact no such thing as a wet volley. He was referring to a drive volley, whereby the player hits the ball in the air and follows through on thier shot. A normal volley is akin to a punch over the net.
