This is a good drill to work on topspin lobs. Many times in a match when
you are on the baseline and your opponent throws up a defensive topspin
lob it will keep you pinned on the baseline. These types of topspin lobs
are not shots that you can just rip back for a winner. Sometimes the best
shot for these is another lob.
Start one player on each side of the court at the baselines. The first
player starts out hitting a lob to the other player. Continue trading
lobs as long as possible. Hit topspin lobs if you can. This does not allow
your hitting partner to get under the ball as easily to hit an overhead
and may cause them to have to hit a lob back.
The best goal is to hit within 5 feet of the baseline. If you wish to
make a game out of it and keep score try the following. Any lob that lands
before the service line stop and start the drill over, the person who
hit the short lob losses the point. Any ball that is not at least 10 feet
high when it crosses the net also losses the point.
Good Luck on the Court!!!
