I'll say they were not advocates of the staggered approach (which I like too).

They were *very* capture the middle/move in; if lob goes, do this; if something else, that; otherwise 'cat & mouse' (psyche out the baseline returner/guy trapped back)...

Modern singles game has real component of waiting, picking off the inopportune volley-er and leads singles guy to like staggered; but dubs pace faster and you must capture the net/get first volley put-a ways/intimidate...

Another tip...? Net man splits and commits, basically fully guessing which way to go. Give him the alley until you are convinced he can hit the stoke...

Got to admit that works pretty well, too.
