Romanian term or phrase: joc de serviciu-voleu
Primul set a fost la discretia lui Henman. Englezul, monument de calm si eficienta, s-a comportat ca un pilot automat. In incantatorul sau joc de serviciu-voleu greselile aproape ca nu si-au facut loc.

It's when you come into the net immediately after serving and then play volleys, instead of staying back at the baseline.
