At 10-8 in the 5th game my serve what serve would you do? Here are the options.
A sure and steady serve that will 100% go in but the receiver will get it back and maybe even with an attack.
A bit more aggressive serve 80% will go in but the receiver if he gets it back will not be able to attack.
A very aggressive serve say 60% will go in but the receiver will either not get it back or you will win the 3rd ball attack.
Please let me know what you think and I will tell you my results from this match scenario. Also one thought I had is the server has two match points.
Interesting discussion point.
I say it depends on your opponent. If it is a player that you are not usually likely to beat or is better in the rally than you are, then go for one of the more risky options.
In general though if it is an even opponent, go with the safer options.
However, I don't think any serve you use in this situation is a serve that is only 80% likely to go in. Perhaps 80% likely to go where you want it to effectively.
If you have 2 match points then you could be a bit riskier on the first option.
What would others do?
