The receiverís partner on the other hand has to position himself around the service line and be ready to move to the volleying position if his partner is able to return an aggressive ball or else he has to move slightly backwards if his partnerís return is a floater.
One important tennis tips for doubles is the poach volley shot. Normally, the tendency of the receiver is to return the serve cross court. In this case, the serverís partner should be very observant in case the receiver decides to hit a weak cross court shot. If the receiving team returns a weak ball, the serverís partner can poach and hit the volley towards the open court. This means that the serverís partner has to cut diagonally towards his partnerís half court to hit the stroke called the "opportunistic poach". Before deciding on whether or not to poach, the serverís partner should be very sure to hit a winning shot. His shot should force their opponent to return a weak shot or else they will be at a vulnerable position as this movement will create an open court in his side. Although poaching can be a very good winning shot, it can also be very difficult. In tennis doubles matches, one of the hardest things is to return the serve. And it will be harder for the receiving team if the serverís partner likes to poach.
