Since you imply that you are not an all court player, since you make a big deal of your opponent playing the net, I assume you are a baseliner, like >90% of young, capable players are nowadays. If so, then I am a bit baffled by your proposal to resort to the lob, when most Modern baseliners would relish an opponent who provides them with passing opportunities, since they are so easy to perform with a Modern game.
