I played last night against a guy that was a great dopshotter. He could hit a dropper from just about anywhere on the court. He was especially good with hitting a dropper from the BH side. He had good wheels and got to most everything I hit. If I hit with good pace he would simply hit the dropper and come to net. I would run up to get the dropper, hit it over for him to just get the easy put away volley. He bageled me in the first set, 6-0. After my dismal first set performance I changed a few things. I ended up winning the match for basically three reasons. One was he had trouble getting his first serve in. He had a really soft second serve. The second reason is I started lobbing effectively over his head when he came to the net. Third, I started hitting with a lot less pace. He was using my pace in the first set to get the dropper over the net with basically no swing involved. He had much more difficuilty hitting the shot when there wasn't any pace. How do you play against this type of player. I've never played anyone whose primary weapon was a drop shot. His first serve was very good when he got it in. If he had gotten his first serve % up I would not have won.
