Tennis strategy: Returning first and second serves
The return is an important shot in any tennis player's game. There are different strategies and techniques you think about when returning a first or a second serve. Here are just a couple of quick tips to focus on a return of serve to help you improve your game.
When returning a first serve, go for the higher percentage shot to better set yourself up for the point. High percentage shots are hit crosscourt on your return when a serve comes in wide. Serves that come at the body or down the T should be returned to the middle of the court.
What do you do when you're faced with a second serve? Take a step in. Get ready to be aggressive and to hit that ball with depth and spin.
