    I'm just a beginner, but I personnaly look at my feet...
    (I have already had a look around when going to the place I'm going to serve from)

    Play well !

    Straight in to my opponent's eyes. I try to distract them as they often try to stare me out. Also, you can sometimes anticipate where they are going to move. I've found that with the stare tactic, I've rattled quite a few less experienced opponents as they forget about the shuttle and try and read me. This usually fails and they end up off balance for returning the service.

    Thumbs up

    Look where I plan to hit fast, and then stare my opponent to kill his guts . (Juzt kiddin bout the guts... But you can find out where did he plan to go sometime... and which area would be best to put him in trouble xD)

    hmm, most of the time i look at the inner corner of the service line on the opponents side.. right about top of the net level... for doubles

    for forearm serves i look out to my opponent and try to get a read of their anticipation then look at my shuttle and racket to make sure the serve will be spot on.

    Either both for me. Stare at the opponents eyes, or at any open space.

    Exacatly what I do! But usually I'll look down at the birdie but not look at them instead of looking down at the birdie then at the opponent.

    Sometimes I stare at my opponent prior to serving, but usually I focus on one particular corner in the service box, then serve long or short in the opposite angle.

    Wink Evolved from b4

    now i find myself looking into nowhere when i serve... I just "feel" the serve and am able to picture where i want it to land... where it actually does end up.. haha, except for my flick serves.. which are infrequent/inconsistent.

    = my expression of my opponents return of my "flick serve"

    I look at my racquet first then stare with the wide eye look at my opponent and always grin before I serve.
