Why play a lob?
Get down low and get the racket under the ball for an effective lob/toss.

I recommend experimenting with the lob, especially when you are out of position and need time, and your opponent is ready to pounce on your return. It will take some practice as the harder the opponent hits the ball, the more skill required to be able to take the pace off the ball and hit a nicely controlled tight lob that just sits in the back corner of the court. Definitely, this shot is under-estimated.
Say, the reply to a drop shot is a cross court lob. The lob will:-
- Let you recover from the front of the court.
- Enable you to clear the ball.
- Force the opponent to the back so you can get to the T.
- Slow down the tempo of the game.
- Read about the Lob technique.
