Create Challenges From The Point Start

Before every point, the serving player has the opportunity to plan their own actions and put pressure on the returner. Choosing a type of serve should always be combined with a plan for the next shot.

The more variations a player has in a given situation, the more unpredictable they can be for any opponent. This will keep the opponent guessing and they will never feel fully comfortable or know what he can expect from the player in the next point.

Playing a serve and volley pattern is always good to have in the locker to surprise opponents and test out their movement. Serving to the backhand and following to the net will force the opponent to hit a potential riskier return and therefore leading to an error. This pattern could be a big point play to give a quick win to the server.
