Doubles is all about your Double . . . meaning setting up your partner for victory.
A timeless strategy in successful doubles play is playing for your partner - and setting him or her up for the "hero's winner."
Part of this strategy includes playing shots fearlessly from "no-man's land".
And it means hitting most of your transition shots to your opponent's feet.
This forces them geometrically to hit the ball up on their reply, thus often feeding your partner an easy put-away volley.
And a natural bonus to this strategy - you're both communicating and working together as a team.
