I'm not a tennis fan by any stretch, but seriously, I'm a goalie and have played at a reasonably high level, and stopping a slapshot is easy. You just get in the way. I would assume it's much harder in tennis because you not only have to stop the ball, you have to return it. It's not enough just to get any part of your body in front of it.
