At Guts and Glory Tennis, we are avid tennis players as well as racquet technicians. Today we are extremely proud to unveil a new tennis term that will soon be sweeping the tennis world. Remember, you heard it here first!
“Lobortunity” – (noun) meaning:
1. An appropriate or favorable time or occasion to lob.
2. A situation or occasion favorable for a lob.
The Lob is perhaps the most underappreciated and underused weapon in tennis. Properly implemented the lob can be a deadly stroke taking opponents out of their game and creating offensive opportunities on weak replies. I’d like to personally thank my pal Arthur who has tutored me well on the subject. As Arthur frequently says, “High ball wins point!”
