Thank you! Stop hating on the lob, people!
Played women's doubles against two aggressive net rushers. Things were looking bad for us until we decided to see how many overheads they could hit in a row. (Our coach has us hit 10 in a row to different spots.) Well, they weren't used to hitting a lot of them. The third was usually an error. Quite the turnaround!
