Wayne Bryan, the legendary coach and father of the most successful doubles duo ever, teaches some doubles trickery with the fake poach.
The key is to fake the poach early so it looks like you're really committing to crossing the court, but then jump back to your original position instead.
“You're trying to draw that return down the line," Bryan says. "You go ahead of the guy’s swing so he’s got to come back down the line. And then you're there camping on it, ripping that backhand volley right between them."
