This would typically be a move for Waldner but I really want to know how to do the surprise dropshot right past the net when my opponent is far away trying to lob my smashes back at me. I can't seem to get the ball to bounce twice. any hints or tricks how he does it?
some dropshots can be seen in this footage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPwMsECzoh0
Firstly wait till the ball bounces close to the net on your side. Then take the ball very close to the bounce and have a very relaxed hand. Also hitting the ball with a little sidespin will help it to stay short.
We have a lesson on this in our Strokes & Techniques section. Drop Shot off a Lob.
