I always just watch the server and a lot of times they move way earlier then the net player. So it's pretty easy to just get the ball back to the server and avoid the net player.
Or the net player leaves too soon and moves full speed which allows me to return it right down the center. (it's especially good when both players are running away from the middle)
I think it's something that takes some working on like anything else, people who just try it because they read it in a book seem to get it wrong.
(the same with signaling or planned poaching, like my partner who leaves instantly and runs way too far)
