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.
this guy in paticular doesnt lob... but his ball comes with some spin, no pace, about shoulder height. Its not a lob, more of a drive.

but he lobs sometimes, for sure, but not everytime.
