In tennis, a small number of double faults is acceptable and a player who rarely double faults is probably not being aggressive enough with power or placement.  I am wondering if there is any parallel thinking in table tennis?  If so, should I push my serve to the point where I miss occasionally, or should the server be more conservative since to miss is loss a point?

Hi Steve,

I think in a match you should aim for zero faults.  It gets too expensive to lose a point with a fault.

In training is where you can push your limits and see what is possible.
