  1. Want to start winning more matches? Watch our free tactics & strategy video lesson here –

  2. I'm new to doubles and getting beaten by players who are weaker individual players yet play as a better team. Your video is clear and concise. As always, I like your tone. Simple, not condescending.

  3. What should the net player do is his partner hits a great shot pulling the opposing baseline player very wide? should the volleyer move in an try to inercept or ove wide and cover the tramlines?

  4. Thank you gents! I was “encouraged” to sign up for a mixed doubles league by my better half and have my first match in about a week—should make for some comic relief but your tutorial will definitely help me preserve a smidge of dignity.

  5. Hello Guys, great video and thank you. What I struggle with as you mention is the positions of the volley player in Doubles. Maybe you can play out the scenarios for Left Court Volley First Serve / Second Serve – Right Court Volley / First Serve / Second Serve and then the same thing when the other party is returning. So we are talking about 8 positions and the best volley tactic / strategy within these scenarios. I hope this makes sense what I mean ?

  6. How do I know when to transition from the ad. to the deuce side? I recently played in my first doubles tennis game, and found it much more difficult than singles. I know my positions and how to serve, as well as how to volley but I am just not sure on all the rules and circumstances of each play. I have another one tomorrow and still have no idea what to do, I'm aware you probably won't be getting back to me tonight, but the information would still be plenty useful for my future tennis games. Please write back to me or do a video on the subject, I would greatly appreciate and it would help my knowledge of tennis to grow as well as my technique and skill.

  7. Hi Simon and Alex, how could I deal with a partner or one of opponent team (double) who constantly tries to give feedback or coach(?) during a match? I don’t think he is not necessarily a better player than the one who is receiving his feedback, but his kibitzing discourages the other and kind of stalls the match. Do you have any insight on this? Thank you!

  8. Should I come back for my partners very weak second serve? I'm left a sitting duck on weak seconds serves against a powerful return who slams the ball into my face.

  9. When playing doubles, what I have a tendency to struggle with the most is where my eyes should be directed; especially when I'm at the net and my partner is at the baseline returning the ball. My question is quite simply: where should my eyes be focused whilst at the net and playing defense? Thank you and I love the videos!

  10. I find it hard to keep the ball down when either it is hit short from the returner (so is low when i play it), or when it comes to me quickly from the net player. In both cases i am habitually simply popping it up and losing the point, resulting in a loss of confidence. It would be good to know how to address this. Thanks as ever for your vidoes.

  11. I'm a solid club player with some college tennis background.  I have been struggling with hitting some defensive shots.  Some examples are: returning short balls with a chopper grip (I see pros hit it flat and some hit with slice… I tend to use slice but I always end up hitting the ball high in the air), returing wide shots with forehand slice (?) (again I have seen federer using slice, lob, or just hitting it flat).  What is the proper motion for this technique? Because this is not in the textbook! Thanks Alex and Simon.

  12. there's a lot of good information here, but I found the instruction a little fast. Sometimes I didn't know which side (serving or receiving) the instruction was meant for. I would like to see the same material presented over, say, two videos. One for the serving team and the other for the receiving team. Maybe some whiteboard drawings too. there's a lot of geometry in doubles (singles, too), and we can't capture it with just one person talking and the other playing different roles on the court.

  13. Thanks for this video. There are lots of doubles leagues here in the US and I'm sure this video will make them fans. Some common issues I see (playing in a 4.0 league): 1. positioning, particularly for the net player 2. winning strategies for 3.5 and 4.0 players 3) handling high volleys and lobs

  14. For basic level doubles I would have thought the returner partner would be a bit further back – actually in line with the service box line so they can see/call the serve in or out as you won't have lines people.

  15. Will you guys cover the I formation too please? Including the pros & cons of it? In what situation is it recommended or not? I'm really intrigued by it and would love to learn more from you guys because I love the way you explain things in your videos. Thanks hips guys. Love your work. Keep it up!
