What are the Best Shots to use under Pressure?

 

Answer:

Counter Drop and Lob
Keep it simple. Think about not complicating things when you are under pressure. The counter drop and lob can be used in conjunction with each other as a really effective defensive weapon. Think about shortening your swing and going in with the intention of either dropping or lobbing, you don't need loads of options going around in your head when you are under lots of pressure.

By working the two shots in conjunction with each other your opponent can never premeditate what shot is coming and has to be prepared to cover both option. With the drop you are trying to leave the ball right up the front of the court tight to the sidewall. With the lob you are trying to get the ball hanging in the air for as long as possible in order to give yourself time to recover and get back to the T.
