Tip From The Pro: Counteracting The Baseline Lobber In Doubles

This is a guest post from Brian Montez, tennis pro and owner of K Factor Sports. Brian is a teaching pro working with players of all levels and abilities, from kids to adults, beginners to open-level, and everything in between. Here, Brian gives a great tip for dealing with lobbers.

How do you get out of a rally with a baseline player that lobs the ball every time they hit it you? Attack! Don't be afraid to take the ball out of the air and attack to the net player's alley or angle the ball off and away from the baseliner, forcing that person to move out of position and opening up the court. You should never stay at the baseline and hit it right back to the lobber because they will only continue to lob. Playing the lob game will cause you much frustration and take you out of your game!
