    Whoops, that does rather change things, yes. Given that information, I would tend to agree with you about lifting to this opponent.

    However, it's not as cut-and-dried as you might think. If he has very good drop shots, you can be reduced to scrambling from one side of the net to the other.

    There's a practice routine where one player, the "feeder", constantly lifts straight while the other hits cross-court drops. Have you ever tried this? It's surprisingly hard work for the "feeder"!

    One more thought:

    Given that this opponent has a very weak clear, we can also assume that his smashes are weak. Personally, all I would do against such an opponent is move my base forwards (so I'm no longer covering the very back of the court). Then, when he plays a drop shot, I'll either kill it, or get there very early and play a nasty net shot.

    Essentially, this is the same tactic I use when I've forced my opponent to be late in the rearcourt, especially on his backhand. I move forwards, knowing that a good clear or smash is unlikely. The only difference is that, given that magiadam's opponent is chronically weak in the rearcourt, he can use this tactic all the time.

    I understand that magiadam has trouble playing a good net shot. But really, this opponent is supplying the perfect opportunity to learn. Once you get a half-decent net shot, he's finished.

    I just thought.. what if this mid-court clear opponent.. hmm, give him a far backhand side attacking lob/lift. if his forehand only reach midcourt, im pretty sure his backhand didnt even reach middle. so just stay front and do a net kill.

    becoz i've had similiar opponent on the past whose clear is only reach mid-court. already do that and its effective

    But then the feeder isn't practising anything.

    A tip would be attack his back-hand that is the golden rule of all time unless the opponents backhand is very good then thats too bad.

    Tip 1: Drop the opponents forehand and lift to backhand it is a forced-backhand (you must have very fast and good overhead cross because the opponent might lift straight to your backhand

    Tip 2: Clear his forehand then backhand

    Tip 3: In singles try and catch his movement and counter his moves

    Hahahahaha. Sounds like there's a DJing technique called the [track] Drop Return.

    If he keeps playing net shots, use deception. Hold and flick, hold and drop.

    why not just anticipate and pounce forward for a brush net kill? Taking early is really the key to countering tight net play.
    Even taking a slow drop early enough can put tremendous pressure on the opponent---just push down the line or brush it cross court
