Well, if you are about to feint, please don't let anyone else know. This defeats the whole purpose.
I have written this article with not one intent, but with a realization: At some point in many a club, league and/or tournament player's career (life), they no longer wish to improve the execution of their strokes, physical preparedness or their technical performance of the game. I get it. What happens on the court, particularly in doubles play, becomes pretty challenging - strategy and gamesmanship become paramount.
Feinting (faking, if you will, without the drama) is implying (physically by posture or motion) you are about to do something you are not about to do, or maybe not.
Every sport has its athletes who are good at it when needed or advantageous - a running back breaking through the line, a basketball player driving to the basket through a crowded lane, a lone soccer player approaching goal with only one opponent and the goalie at defense.
