    Doubles long serve!!

    Hi Wind Rider!!

    There are many different ways to serve a good long serve in mens doubles.

    First of all, you need to take a look at your opponent. Is he tall, small, quick or slow.

    If the player is tall or very fast you need to give the serve a little bit of height to get over the opponent.

    If the player is slow or small it can be a good idea to make a more flat and quick serve past the player.

    You can also use some variation in your long doubles serve. Try serve for the middle line, outerline and a point the middle of these two. This way the your opponent don´t know if he has to go back in a straight line or he has to sidestep.

    Hope you can use this!!
