Doubles is a game of percentages. The winning team is not the one hitting the best shots but the one hitting the solid shots over and over.
There is a big difference between playing against the returner’s strength or playing against the returner’s weakness.
Although the doubles game has changed recently and more players are playing from the backcourt, it is still a volley game.
One of the main strategies in doubles is to control the net. Fight to catch the lobs in the air.
The closer you are to the net, the easier it is to volley. Be aggressive, move forwards and play as close to the net as the opponent will let you.
