    Well I had a practice this week before other members turned up and I was hitting 3 corners consistently. So I gave it a bit of a go in the first couple of games, the idea being that if I mixed up my serve then its far more dificult to read. First game was a white wash as each "new" serve was either left or miss read so I had a hefty advantage before dealing with any returns. The second game was a bit closer, but I still forced some fairly poor returns of serve from my opponents, its definatley something to take further.

    It's hard on the eyes with the fonts being so compressed. Best to keep to default fonts.

    Actually I do wear glasses and I have been dealing with Times New Roman since my University years. That's why I speak from experience.

    Generally speaking, serif fonts are better for print and sans-serif fonts are better for screen reading.

    Screen is much lower resolution than print, so the serifs on fonts such as TNR tend to make screen text harder to read (the resolution is too low for all that detail). At print resolutions, the serifs improve readability because they make the letters more distinctly different.

    Common typographical usage suggests:
    • Serif font for print body, sans-serif headings
    • Sans-serif font for screen body, serif headings
    Word processors are primarily intended to create documents that will be printed. That's why they use a default serif font.
