How was he picking off points at the net? Putting away high volleys? Forcing you into too many errors on passing shots? Putting away low volleys? Because the 1st two are much more common than the last in my experience. So one strategy is to make him work for his points at the net - don't try hit winners past him, just try hit his feet; the combination of being low and having no angle to work with might give him trouble and set you up for the next shot.
