If he's stalking the baseline, mix up wide shots with shots hit at his feet!
IF he can adjust quickly by backing up/sideways, he may have time to crack off a inside-out forehand. You probably will NOT get a return aimed right back at you, or pulled down the line, if he is rushed by a powerful and/or well placed shot at their toes.
