They keep asking me for pointers. I've told them they may want to try lobbing a bit more; get used to slower-paced balls from the women; don't shy away from the woman, even at the net (just don't blatantly go after her!).

I could definitely use a few more if you folks got some. I would love to hear some from the women's perspective (especially some 4.0's).

Thanks!
