Ditto.

You need an overhead to deal with the constant lobbing, but just come to the net. By definition nothing is going to have much pace. You'll have lots of time to hit volleys, and when you know he's going to lob set-up back at the service line. Generally a bad tactic against a player with strokes, but against a pusher it's effective because even if he "drives" the ball instead of lobbing you'll have time to close and take the volley. You don't need monster volleys either, just stick the racquet out and angle it off.
