Which short balls shouldn't be attacked? If you don't attack them what do you do w/ the ball?
I'll try to answer my own questions, but I assume you're talking about short severely angled shots and esp. those which have fallen below your knee by the time you reach it.
I usually will either slice it back crosscourt and backup (I'm assuming the guy can't keep hitting these angles) or hit a drop shot and close into the net.
