    The best part of a tennis doubles match is the seemingly natural coordination between the two players. The back-court player hits a deep ball just short of the baseline to force the opponent to the right or left. This allows the player at the net to intersect a fast but easy ball to hit a sharp angled volley into the void in the opponent’s court. The harmonious play between the two players is truly breathtaking to see. Jreibun
