I took on a guy last night that was very skilled at hitting flat balls that probably cleared the net by an average of 6 inches. Normally I would think the odds would be against this shot but he only put about 10% in to the net. I tried mixing up topspin, slice and lobs. The only thing that seemed to be effective for me was lobbing, but I really hate being "that guy". Looking back, I'm thinking that I should have worked the slice a little harder to try to keep the ball low to the ground. It seems like this should somewhat negate his flat ball shots as he would have to get more lift on his shots to put it over the net. Any thoughts??
