  1. 90 % of doubles guys in 4.0 level and below doesn't get this point and they have been playing doubles for 20 years.. LOL

  2. If the opponents net player looks like about to smash a weak return, do you run back to try and field an overhead, or do you move closer to the middle to tray and get them to hit a lower percentage shot towards the sideline?

  3. Hi Ian! I've been watching your tutorials for almost 2 weeks already and it helped me a lot especially the slice serve 😊 but I have a problem… Every time the scenario is: I hit the ball and the netter was able to return it around the base line, I'm having a difficulty on hitting it back. Either I become too stiff (so it result's to net) or I won't be able to ready for the ball at all. Do u have any tips for this? Maybe u can answer my concern 😊 even by just replying on this comment would be a great help thank u 😊😊

  4. Watch your partner peripherally if you are not sure of the quality or direction of his shot. This is not so bad if there is time to swing like on big groundies. I observe this in even the best teams (mac and anyone, hahaha). Best these days of power dubs to KNOW where your partner is going by agreement. I tell my students to shoot where I have the best chance to cut off the reply. This is the meaning of the team concept of overmanning your opponents…create 2 on 1's…NOT, as singles minded players often do…1 on 2..Hope that helps, Cheers!

    Quisiera saber recomendaciones sobre la volea, como volear mas sólido, el mejor grip. Muchas gracias, saludos desde Venezuela!

  6. I just watched a Hingis/Paes match, they actually both watch the ball as it goes past them when they're at the net.

  7. Hey Ian, can you make video compilation of "how to play doubles" which consisted of some points to play double tennis, such as how to watch the ball, shading, movement without ball, how to cover, etc that could make players like me, who is good on singles game but bad on doubles, to understand doubles tennis better?

  8. I love it!!! very helpful. Following this "what to watch" pattern makes a big difference in the game.  It did for me!!! Thank you
