I'm in a 4.5 league and I had a doubles match yesterday vs an older 4.5 team who S&Ved on every serve and chipped and charged on most returns. My partner and I lost 1-6,4-6 and were left baffled after the match. And the only reason we got to 4-6 in the final set is because we served out of our minds and still got broken at the end. These guys would block back hard serves and approach the net, and we could not for the life of us get it past them. Both my partner and I can hit pretty big off both wings but these guys were rock solid at the net and were too difficult to pass. All credit to the guys we played, they were good and outplayed us. But, should my partner and I start S&Ving on every point ?Is this what we will encounter as we play better teams this season ? I mean we can volley, I guess we just haven't played a team who could handle our ground strokes/serves like that. They played a very, very simple game and I'm wondering if that is the way to go.
