If at all possible, you'll want to watch your opponents hit during warm ups.
For instance, if a player never hits line in warm ups, chances are, they're not going to try it in the game. You can then concentrate on taking away the angle shot, since that's the one they'll use most.
Watch what they do when the ball is close to the net. Do they tip every time, or do they hit away or try to wipe?
Do they ever use off-speed or tips, or are they just bangers, hitting angle and damn the consequences?
Every hitter has a favorite shot. Learn it, and then take it away from them. Only then will you be able to see what that player is really made of.
