I just wanted to ask: https://youtu.be/uQ_bkiu0HCI?t=64
I see the smashes are falling rather to Michal Maze's lap.
But whenever I get into lobbing situation,I never get this.
The balls are falling behind my head etc.
Are they having so much bigger court that even our TOP League reaches about half the size?
Or is the lobber creating THAT much topspin to reduce the power that much?
Or is there any other secret how to enforce this?
Michael Maze is an exceptional lobber. He keeps a lot of topspin on the ball and also keeps the ball deep on the opponent's side. When he gets the opportunity he will keep the ball lower as well to stop his opponent from making an effective strong shot.
He then reads the opponent's direction well and places himself into the middle fo the area that they are likely to hit the ball. This allows him to cover the possibilities well and it then looks like they are smashing the ball straight to him.
