My team has its last match of the season this evening and we need to win at least one out of four doubles rubbers to secure promotion in second place in the table. Unfortunately the team we are playing are in first place and have not lost a single rubber all season - we do not have rated leagues here and new teams (however strong) start at the bottom and work their way up. Despite the fact that we have our strongest lineup playing winning a single set (let alone rubber) will be a big ask. Having played the opposition earlier in the season I know what to expect. They all have very good serves and net play. Both pairs include a leftie and I am a rightie playing the ad court so will be seeing loads of fast wide leftie slices to my backhand. Against pace I can only slice / chip my backhand return of serve (changing that is on my todo list for the winter). Trouble is their net men are tall and good volleyers / poachers so all my sliced returns cross court will be killed. Bearing this in mind what would you do in my situation? If we can get enough returns in play and past the spider man at the net man I fancy our chances of getting a break or two as both my partner and I are masters of 'scrambled' points. All suggestions (especially based on experience of similar) much appreciated.
