When elite players serve a let, do they normally serve the same serve again - because there was obviously a reason to serve that serve that fitted with their gameplan - or do they change their serve because the receiver had a chance to see that serve and perhaps have an idea about the spin from the way the ball reacted off the let? And how about a situation (as sometimes happens to me, as I'm sure with others) where you found yourself serving 4-5 lets in a row? Are the elite players constantly changing their serve each time?
I think this depends on the situation. I would tend to serve the same serve because I know what I wanted back and would feel that I wanted to get that same return. However you may change the position slightly or the spin slightly. You need to read what your opponent's feeling as well. If you feel confident in your serve and serving then I would say, stick with it.
If there were 2 or 3 lets I may change in that case.
I would be interested in other players opinions.
