There are many reasons why your opponents are hitting shots at your feet or past you. First of all take a look at your positioning on the court. You said that you are both at the net. How close are you to the net? Are you standing on the service line or right at the net? When you approach the net you should hit a volley and then continue to close in on the net. You are doomed if you remain at the service line or even in the middle of the service box because this allows your opponent to have more leverage over you. Plus, you can throw off your opponent
