BOOM. Overhead winner from me angled behind the net person (now on the deuce side and still wondering what's happening).



Mayhap a bit cheesy with the lob thing...but effective as hell (at the Club level ).
Wow, great stuff

Worth a new thread I think. We can give each other tips of point construction. I'm pretty good at constructing points in singles but stink at doubles, where I play a very predictable game by comparison, so could use some good, solid advice from a pro like yourself, Angle Queen

Constructed point by me would be something like: slice crosscourt a few times deep and then slice short with some angle to make the player come up to the net and then I pass him. It works a lot more than you'd think.

bh dropshot, sliceing the bh for so many years helps you develop amazing touch on that side, my opponents get frustrated a lot, saying that those are lucky shots, they can think what ever they want, i know its my best shot by far....

Thanks, Tidus...but I'm no pro. More like a little ole lady who's been playing awhile.

"Constructing" points in doubles is a lot harder since there are twice as many people on court, points are usually much shorter and there's a lot of reaction/defense going on. You can try to practice standard strategies/patterns (i.e. pulling both opponents in...if they're not there already...then going up the middle or over their heads). Even though they're "known" by both sides of the net...they often "work". And it's the experienced player(s) who defend it well or don't allow themselves to get in those positions for their opponents to perpetrate them.

Default Re: Your Favourite Shot?

My favorite constructed point is to basically camp out on the ad side of the court and hit deep forehands to the opponent's backhand...and if they hit it short, I can either hit it harder to the backhand side, hit a hard down the line shot, or drop shot them.

But my favorite shot is my forehand...my backhand is more consistent, but I get more power on the forehand and dictate better with it. I like to drop shot a lot (almost too much) and then lob them. I'm very much the type that likes to mix things up a ton and toy with an opponent, even if I get obliterated doing so

Default Re: Your Favourite Shot?

I really cant decide. My game is very mixed up, for rallies i hot double handed off both sides most of the time, though i often mix it up with one handed backhands and punch forehands. I used to be a baseliner but now i come to the net very often aswell, mostly on the back of low angled one handed forehands. If i had to choose, i suppose my double handed forehand because sometimes i can just pick out angles from nothing and land it straight on the line.

low forehand topspin approach shot that just rainbows over the net and into a corner. My favorite to hit at least and they look pretty cool
