Paul Annacone discusses how to execute a topspin lob that will get your opponent on his or her heels. The former coach of Roger Federer and Pete Sampras highlights some some important factors such as committing to the shot, hitting aggressively, and accelerating the racquet head.

"Even if you go long on the topspin lob, you’re sending a message early in the match that your opponent can’t crash the net," he says.
