Hi, this is Scott for Expert Village. We’re
going to talk about return of serve. This is one of the best ways to win points. Obviously,
if somebody’s serving that’s going to be to their benefit. That’s why when you watch pro
matches they’re always talking about somebody losing their serve or somebody getting their
service broken. That’s because normally you’re always supposed to hold serve or win your
serve. A good way to do that, break somebody’s serve, is to have a good return of serve game.
What we’re going to do today is talk about the breaking of somebody’s serve by ways of
getting a decent return of serve. Say, the guy is hitting, your opponent is hitting the
ball mostly to your forehand. He thinks that you have a weaker forehand. So, what you want
to do is feel him out a little bit, then you start at the baseline in your ready position.
When the guy is hitting, your opponent is hitting the ball to your forehand, you’re
getting your quick turn of your body and you want to pick a spot on the court that you
want to try to hit towards. You don’t want to just randomly hit the ball down the middle
because he’s just going to return it back. And , if he’s coming in off of a good serve,
chances are he’s going to put the ball away on you. So, what you want to do is you want
to pick a spot. You’re pulling your racket back and you’re busting the ball either down
the line because he has a tendency to come down the middle or you’re going to go cross
court. You want to be able to use his pace to your advantage by just turning and punching
the ball.
