As easily done as said...
Yesterday got to play a couple of doubles sets with local winning 12's and 14's girls. Both adult sized, but only 3 total years of tennis experience each.
I easily allowed their winners to go by, without even moving for the ball. No biggee, I could hit the NEXT ball where they didn't like it, so saving some energy can work.
Interesting strategy.
About 27 years ago, one of my monthly practice partners NEVER ran for a ball. She was a woman's A/Open, and 3 months after we stopped hitting, she WON the CanadianOpen. I doubt she decided to run just for that tourney.
Sometimes, you gotta employ the strategy that works best for YOU.
