I was wondering, when you play against LP players, do you adjust your serve (for example, by doing spinless serves)?

Hi Ji-Soo,

What I find best is to serve with either no spin or even better backspin.  This gives me a topspin return that is easier to attack.

If you try to put too much sidespin on the serves you get a wobbly return that may be hard to deal with.

You still need to think about placement and stopping the LP player from attacking.
