If someone does a wrong serve like not tossing the ball up before serving but other than that, the serve is perfectly fine, what happens? Is the serve repeated or is it the opponent's point? Or something else?

Hi Tayyib,

If the serve is illegal in any part then it is a point against the server.

The umpire may warn the player in this situation but they don't have to.

Subsequent foul serves mean that the receiver will be awarded the point.
