    When to Play 2-Back in Doubles (& How)

    When to Play 2-Back in Doubles (& How)

    In doubles, getting to the net is a winning strategy. But sometimes it pays to play two-back in doubles.
    Why would we want to play two-back?What are the scenarios where it makes sense to play two-back?What is the best strategy when my partner and I are both at the baseline?In this episode, I analyze all those questions and more.
    Learn the best times to play two-back on the return, including an alternative strategy. I also share a story of when I successfully played two-back on my own serve which I almost never recommend. At the end, I discuss different scenarios of playing two-back vs two-up or one-up and one-back.
    This episode definitely requires you to visualize the court a bit, but the two back strategy doesn't get talked about enough so I hope this helps your game.

    In this conversation, we dive deep into Christo's story including two moments that changed his life. I also ask him how doubles in the '80s and '90s compares to today. After that, we talk a lot about communication on the doubles court between partners, as well as how coaches should be communicating with their students.

    We also talk about doubles strategy. Christo makes an argument for the better player to return from the deuce court. I ask him the biggest mistakes he sees club level players making in doubles, and a lot more.

    I also talk about why our mentality during practice should be different than during a match. We actually want to be making errors in practice. Then, I discuss different drills and games you can do with two or four people. By the end of this episode, you should have a better idea of how you can be more effective with your practice time and improve your doubles game faster.

    In this episode, I talk with Cyndy and Dan Lobb. This is a unique episode because you probably don't know Cyndy and Dan from the ATP or WTA tour ;) I wanted to have them on to share their story. They are 3.0 and 3.5 doubles players from Atlanta, Georgia who have gone from losing league matches and feeling "defeated" to winning against those same teams.

    How?

    They transformed the way they play doubles. During this conversation you'll learn what Cyndy changed that has her opponents now praising her net game, how Dan started helping her hold serve, and what they both have changed about their strategy from the baseline.

Excellent thoughtful interviews

Will has a rare talent. He knows how to interview people well. He know how to pace the conversation & ask the right questions at the right time. He’s calm & thorough. The results are super interesting and sometimes fascinating insights into doubles tennis. The interview with Christo Van Rensburg was one of the best I’ve heard. Highly recommended.
