An effective approach shot .. the one which is deep will give you the time and space to approach the net.

However, as you move behind your ball make sure that you watch the ball, watch the face of your opponent's racket at contact, and just an instant before he strikes the ball you should take a split step, or a bit slowing down, enabling you to turn direction; move toward the ball and step-hit-through it, and keep on closing in until you put it away.

Avoid over-swinging i.e. no backswing but have good punch follow-through.
