i had been thinking of trying this out and i did and i liked the result. anyhow, alot of my topspin lobs were going long. happy with how i'd hit them, but they'd go a few feet out. i think i was paranoid at getting past the opponent at the net. but at my level (low 4.0, but it might work a little higher up), i was thinking why am i so paranoid about getting the topspin lob past the net guy?.... so i started hitting topspin lob really hard with tons of topspin, and if it gets past the net man, all the better.... but i found my opponent who has a pretty good overhead had alot of trouble with the pace of the shot and the fact that it's pretty hard to line up properly.... basically i'm not focussed on getting it really deep, more focussed on pace and topspin. obviously don't want to hit it too short. anyone else thought of this or used it.... bear in mind, i'm talking 4.0 level, and doubt it would work as well in doubles as your opponent is generally much more set. any responses greatly appreciated!!... i wonder if it worked initially just because of surprise factor.
