If he really is a pusher than like the others have said. You lost the game because you got poor net game.
I know. It's easy to say. But you gotta rush him at the net and ready to back up to smash those lobs. If everything is just perfect from his side may be he is just a higher level player than u. I guess.
If he really hit everything back to the middle wouldn't that be a great thing for you?
