I haven't gotten a chance to try out this strategy, but I've never really seen people use it, so I'm wondering where the crucial flaw is. After making a decent drop shot to the center, provided that the opponent is not already in position and has to get there, why not approach the net? -If both of you are close to the center, no matter how wide they try to place the responding drop shot, you can push it if it's more than a couple inches over the net, and they're toast. If it's a good drop, you're in position to respond with a lift or a drop, to at least continue the rally. -If they try to lift it over your head, you can just make an overhead net shot. They will not be able to hit it over your head because both of you are close to the net; if they hit it with enough angle to make it over your head, then it won't go past midcourt and you're in perfect position for a smash. As long as your reflexes are good enough, I don't see any problems with this tactic. Is there something I'm missing? Because I don't see this kind of thing used in regular singles play.
