Personally, I try to just play the point as though I had no partner if I have signaled poach. I have to get that crosscourt ball some kind of way.

So I try to stay on my toes and I just judge everything based on the strength and location of the serve and the returner. I try not to be moving when they are hitting, though.

I haven't been able to figure out any sort of formula. If I try to go when the returner looks down, I will sometimes overrun the poach.
