One simple solution to this. Move a couple of inches/yards (as much as you need to) inside the baseline and punish the junk. Not neccesarily hit a direct winner, but hit at least offensive shot. Those kind of low bouncing short balls are ideal to attack if you're in the right position. And of course be prepared to move back if they start to hit deeper balls. But it's hard for them to come out of their groove, so with standing a little forward as your ready postion you're probably be fine.
