Do not forget the 5hth wall!!
Return of the lob serve and shot selection can be a nerve-wracking experience in a tight match when you are seeing that ball come drifting slowly toward your backhand, shoulder height. That is why you must learn to master the ceiling ball. The better your ceiling game, the better your chances of winning rallies.
Let the shots sort themselves out. Waist high or higher, go to the ceiling. Below the waist, shoot the rock.
I was watching a match the other day and two players were playing a pro tournament. One was not 100% and skipping tons of setups, The other player was on fire and shooting well. Based on that assumption you would think “skippy” got slaughtered. Nope! Skippy was in every game. Skippy lost but skippy had chances to win every game. Why? Shot selection. In a nutshell, not being greedy and impatient. My advice to the athlete playing the skipper(no, Gilligan was not there-old joke sorry younger players.)
Do not force shots from deep court and stay patient, even if you lose a few rallies. Your odds of winning are much higher with you in front of your opponent rather than behind your opponent!
Why do you have trouble on the ceiling? Has to do with the ceiling ball. You have to master it, especially the backhand ceiling ball.
The 5th wall is not to be neglected!
