Any tips to help get involved more when your the front man in mens doubles? If you watch the pro matches, they get involved ALOT , although often by covering the opened up rear corner after the defense whips it across. How do you guys get more involved ? Im a fairly decent player but am much more comfortable attacking from the back or driving. When im at the front I find the flattened out returns of smashes go past me too fast , and the steep smashes get returned over my swinging racket as i try to jump to intercept. Tips/strategies? I stand about a foot behind the T. Should I bias myself completely to one side for the straight lift return, or should I stay central? Bonus Question! - Watching pros, after a serve the server very often can block the push return , be it down the middle or wide - are they randomly guessing the direction and just going for it ? Perhaps observing opponents grip and return patterns and serving into areas that make it more likely? Or are they just that insanely fast that they can get a racket to these shots?
