Nadal's solution... stay even farther back, a couple of steps behind the basline, take one step forward as he makes contact (still behind teh basline, but momentum going forward) and hit heavy topspin?

Make sure your doubles partner knows to rush the net to cover any volleys as you'll be a couple of steps behind your usual position.

Or just get better at taking it early. Watch Davydenko. Easier said than done.
