I tried to lob less and hit it lower but his volleys would kill me.
Sorry this is kind of long, but any tips how i could get the ball through him?
It depends. If he starts
in the middle then they are playing I formation. There are techniques for dealing with that. OTOH if he lines up normally then moves
to the middle after the serve is struck, that is poaching and there are different ways of dealing with that.
So which is it?
