I had some good results against one of my regular dinker partners using the Wagner method. I used a much smaller take back of the raquet, shadowing the incoming ball, going up to meet the ball and then accelerating through the shot. This partner often starts with a medium dink and then takes as much as possible off it as the set continues to have the pleasure of watching me hit the ball in the net, wide, long etc. My frustration leads to more impatience etc. etc. With the above shot though, I was able to consistantly and safely return his shots with more pace than they were hit to me and actually had the pleasure of watching him implode for once. Also with this shot it's easy to disguise your direction, having your opponent scramble while you're at the net for the put away. I don't know if it was beginners luck, but I had more success against slooow balls than ever just trying this shot the last few times out. Who knows, maybe its the dinker killer technique for the rest of us.
