When the ball has gone past you while in the middle of the court that can overcome the shoveling problem, ie
- Turn and travel(move to the ball) facing the back wall.
- Keep away from the corners and side wall.
- Do not go any furtherinto the corner than, say a racket length from the side or back wall, leaving room to swing the racket.
- Try not to rush and crowd (by getting too close to the ball).
- Take long low strides for balance and be prepared to bend low to get under the ball..
- If the ball strikes the back wall, about a racket length high, it will surely bounce back into the court, so wait for it, and drive/lob to length. That will get you out of trouble.
- If the ball strikes lower than, say, a racket length high, be prepared to hit a side wall boast. This shot, hit at the correct angle on the side wall, can be a really good shot. That will also get you out of trouble.
- Always follow up the boast, and look to return the next shot to length.
