When you get lobbed, what's the best thing to do. If it's a good lob, the obvious thing is to just get it back (I was taught to try to hit it as high as possible to allow yourself to get back into the point). But when you have the time what's the best thing to do? Like, if you were a teaching pro, what would you teach the kid and why? When I have the time I hit it over my shoulder because I have three options 1. Pronated flat shot 2. Slice shot 3. Slice lob I know people who run around it to hit a backhand lob or get around to hit a regular forehand What's the best thing to do?
