I don't think this can be made into a math question.
But if you're hitting drives and your opponent is lobing, I think it's a mistake to try to hit harder and harder. At really high levels it's a great advantage to be at the net, but not so much at other levels. So, hit a short ball to bring him to the net. Now see how well this guy volleys and smashes. I don't picture many moonballers being too effective at the net.
