Pointing or Catching 

A lob can sometimes be hard to find.

Most players point to the ball as it is coming down.

I prefer to have my hand as if going to catch it.

Why?  Because it gives me the idea of letting the ball get close to me, while pointing the finger only gives me a sense of direction.

Pointing could rush you, while catching makes you wait for the right time to smash the ball.
