Besides . . . besides . . . you guys don't make it easy on us damsels. Half the time you are unhappy that we didn't put a ball away, and the other half of the time you are telling us to lay off balls because you're there. It makes a damsel hesitate and freeze and second-guess herself.
And tap the sitter back to the other guy at the baseline.
The best advice I can give you on that is to hit your winner toward the other lady, never toward the other guy. Even if the court is open on the guy's side. Also, it helps if you keep the ball low. No floaty stuff.
