Hi - I need some advice about how to deal with a doubles team that has perfected the lob. Over the last season I've been working hard toward improving my net game and can now claim to be Agressively Mediocre. Believe it or not, that's a huge improvement. This last game torpedoed any budding confidence out of the water. Here's how the match played out: Both opponents could lob high and deep into our backcourt at will. Eventually they would both take the net while one of their balls was returning to Earth from orbit. Neither my partner nor I are good enough to paste an overhead slam from that deep into our backcourt with a high degree of accuracy. In fact, my overhead sucks. Eventually we just decided to lob everything back and play conservative, waiting for our chances. We came close, but no cigar. This is the second team we've faced over the last few seasons that has used this strategy effectively against us (we play 3.5, btw, so our toolbox is limited). Any suggestions? I'm usually pretty calm while playing tennis, but after this match I wanted to smash my racket into a pile of flinders and set it on fire in the middle of the court.
