It works great.
But if I get to the ball a bit earlier, I'll drive it flat with very little net clearance, especially in doubles in which I try to hit all shots very low over the net to make it more difficult for my opponents to hit aggressive volleys.
Excellent way to end the point quickly in doubles. Unfortunately, not in your favor.
