I was playing a 3.5 ladies doubles match yesterday. I was receiving on the ad court. One of our opponents had a good serve. Nice spin, and she was able to place it at the T with some pace, so it curved away from me toward the deuce court. When things were going well, I narrowly avoided the ace by flying to my right as fast as I could and managed a good cross-court return back to her with pace. So far, so good. The problem was that this left me way out of position, almost in an I formation with my partner. By the time I stopped my momentum and started to recover back to the ad court, the opponent was cracking a shot into the open court. Point lost. I didn't know what to do about this. I don't know how to slice a return off of such a serve. Lobbing would have been a rather low-percentage bet for me. Should I have called a switch play (thereby asking my partner at net to run over to the ad court) so I could continue to the deuce court? Or is the correct thing to do just to get my butt back over to the ad court?
