  1. I just watched your ‘doubles’ tips, and I agree with the moving together, however, when we are serving, and I see the return of serve going to my partner, I sprint to the net, so for a few seconds we are one up and one back….until my partner sprints up to the net. The advantage (of course) is that at least one of us is at the net, if the opponents return with a dink shot, we have half a chance of getting it, but we are ‘separated’ for those seconds. Do you think this is a good strategy? or should we both stay back, until the 3rd shot is returned, and sprint in together? Thanks!

  2. I totally agree. Once you see the ball going away from you-cover the net!

  3. I love this site! I would like to see more slow motion shots…..forehand backhand…dinks etc. the slow motion serv was great.

  4. This is awesome. I go to sleep practicing shots in my mind, and now I can have some positive learnings to ponder before I close my eyes and my arms twitch again.

  5. I totally disagree with the comments above about moving up to the kitchen line before your partner hits the third shot. Here’s a few reasons why. 1. You are moving and in your partners vision. It can throw them off. 2. You don’t know if your partner is going to hit a third shot drop or a third shot drive. 3. If your partner leaves their third shot too high, you being at the kitchen line leaves them an easy winner. Wait and move up together when a good drop shot is hit.
