Okay, so in the last few doubles matches I've played with this guy on the same team I am, I've noticed the same situation arise in almost every other game we play. When I'm at the net and he's returning serve (on the ad side), whether it be off the return of the serve or after a small rally, he gives a weak ball to the net player, which is often put directly behind where I can reach (see diagram below, we're represented by blue dots, opponents red, I'm at the net and the yellow line is the path of the ball). He seems to almost think (I can tell because he almost implies it) it's my fault, that he sets up a forehand volley and it gets angled behind me at considerable speed. Is it? I was always under the allusion that you should never (usually) give the ball directly to the net-player, and if you do, the loss of the point is ultimately "your fault". If it is my fault, what am I meant to be doing instead of what I currently am? If I moved back a bit, then we'd be playing more defensively because of his weak ground play under pressure. And even then, the net guy would still have the angle to end the point and could even drop it short (we play on grass that's pretty hard to run on and doesn't have the highest bounce). It seems because the volley is going on my side once it has been hit, he thinks it is my fault. Shed some light on the situation please!
