Another great “super” kill pattern not only incorporates front to back movement, but side to side.
Start out hitting a deep, penetrating shot to the opposite side of the court from your opponent. You move forward expecting a weak return. When you get the weak return hit a short ball to the opposite side of the court which makes your opponent run like crazy to get to it. Again you will expect a weak return. Then lob to the opposite side of the court and watch your opponent suck air as she tries to run down the lob.
Do this a few times and you better call 911 because your opponent may not recover.
Some of the most devasting shot making patterns combine drop shots and lobs to run your opponent all over the court. Your basic Kill Pattern is to purposely hit a ball short and follow it in to the net expecting a weak return. When you get the weak return from your opponent who has sprinted toward the net to get to your short ball, you lob it over his head to force him to sprint back to get it.
If your opponent does get to the lob, then he will probably give you another weak return that you can either put away or repeat the pattern until he drops from exhaustion.
