Tactical Tennis:

Beating an Aggressive Baseliner

May 1, 2017

If you have to face the kind of player who loves to hug the baseline and rip ground strokes from both wings, don't fear.


Remember not to get into extended rallies with this kind of aggressive baseliner, because that's playing into their strengths. Instead, try serving into the body or drawing your opponent wide off the court to set up easier volleys into the open court. Use these tips to help you win more battles against that baseline basher.
