Magic Shake-Ball

Question: Will I win my tennis match next weekend?

Answer: "What if this mixture do not work at all?"
--Juliet (Romeo and Juliet, 4.3.20)

Well, which tennis mixture exactly? Serve and volley? Backhand cross-court/drop shot? Advil and Diet Pepsi? Or maybe the answer has something to do with the actual plot of Romeo and Juliet ? In this line, Juliet hopes that her "mixture" or potion will allow her to feign death. I'm thinking that Juliet's strategy, modified, could work really well in a tennis match. If I start to tank, I could have a little "collapse" on the court. No big deal. Just long enough to shake up my opponent.
