Whether it’s varying the height of the ball, or… utilizing the offensive chip shot and short ball — it all centers around taking control of the point and making your opponent uncomfortable. A key takeaway from these discussions is that you do not always have hit shots with blistering pace to take control of a rally and put your opponent on edge. You can achieve this effect by understanding your opponent’s strengths and weaknesses and making prudent shot selections.
Many players get grooved on simply hitting their stock shots and disregard other shots and skills they may have in their arsenal… It’s no wonder many players often find themselves in tougher matches and dogfights than expected. Consider the tactic of changing up the height of your shots to make your opponent uncomfortable. Vary the height; win the fight!
