Yeah, it's really all you can do. The strategy is also known as "rope-a-dope". Basically, hit a "weak" shot in the hopes of drawing a weak-to-average response from your opponent... which allows you to hit a stronger shot.

I think the "drop-lob-drop-lob" is the most prevalent rope-a-dope strategy. But the chip backhand to chip backhand is also one... for sure.
