What do you think of short wide serves?

Hi Jasper,

They can work however, it also opens up the wide angle for your opponent.

Think about more central serves initially to ensure that your opponent doesn't have the angle to play with.

Occasionally i serve short and wide, cutting the opponent's sideline. Somehow it feels difficult to return by my opponents

When I serve that, my opponent reaches for the ball

Not bad at all. How's the serve going?

It's good. My opponents always have to reach for the ball but during the rally they are just too powerful. I was the umpire of the finals match. At the end there was cake that has an image of 2 bats and a ball.
