I had a mixed doubles match the other night where the woman on the other team always stayed at the net even when I had a floater/lob that I could hit hard into the court but she always stayed at the net and I felt that I couldn't hit at (or close to her in case my aim was off) and therefore it took away the best shot that I had from me (Smash into their service box on her side... She was weaker compared to her very strong/better male player). I ended up trying to hit it deep into the other side of the court where the guy who was quite good was easily able to get it back (I was in the doubles ally across from the woman). Or I tried to lightly angle it down resulting in many frustrating net balls lol. So.... My question is what do you do when the woman doesn't back up off the the net in a social doubles mixed league? I mentioned it to her male partner during the changeover & he basically said that you don't hit hard at the women at net. OK, but she should back up if she doesn't want to be hit... I just felt that my best chance of winning the point was taken away because of this. Thoughts?
