Responding to Lobs
The best response to a lob is to crush an overhead winner. But what if the ball gets over you? In this original article for Tennisplayer, renowned Marin county California teaching pro Leo Giraldi demonstrates 4 options. The first two are a defensive groundstroke and the underhand lob. The second two are the Tweener and the Windsider. We see pro players hit these last two and some consider them superfluous trick shots. Leo demonstrates how they are actually legitimate defensive options when there are no others.
