In my experience old people always have those sharp angled drop volleys. It's difficult to really hit your shots against, and they can beat lots of good teams that try to bash their way to victory. You almost have to serve and volley and try to get to the net first, you want them to have to hit groundstrokes, not volleys. And you can't play from behind the baseline, you have to anticipate those shallow volleys and play inside the baseline. Lobbing is key to get them off the net, trying to hit passing shots when they are both at the net will not work in your favor.
