I was playing on a slow, low bounce, crappy surface against my father and every point he just does this low slice that barely bounces of the ground. He does it everytime off my second and when possible first serves. What do I do with them? Should I slice it back and run to net? Should I re-drop it?

Develop a low dependable slice like his, and when he hits you a slice, slice it back, deep to his backhand corner and rush the net.

I agree with EricW. Slice it back and run for the net. . . unless he's a good moon-baller. :-)

Better yet, don't even let it bounce at all. You know what's coming, so follow your serve into the net if you can. Players with that good of a slice backhand, especially older ones, will use it 9/10 times. So you know what's coming. Your best match up against slice is when you're at the net. Now he has to either hit topspin, or float a slice that you can put away.

Tell your dad that if he does another slice like that, you'll send him to a retirement home when he is older :p . I bet he will stop.

I like your thinking
