If you guys are at similar levels, the key is really how good the serve is. If it is a weak serve, you should be able to easily put the ball down the line into the wide open alley. You also have time to mix it up with crosscourt shots and lobs to keep the net man off balance (though he will probably move back to the standard position after you pass him down the alley a few times).
If the serve is strong and you have problems returning well and can't put the ball where you want, having the net man playing in the middle and picking off all the easy balls is good strategy.
