Routine is key and I guarantee you all the pros have one. Certainly all the national level players in Canada do.
A big element of the routine is for focus, though. To clear to the last point from one's mind and prepare the body to re-exert.
One thing that no one has mentioned in their routine, but that is very important, is breathing. That is key, especially when serving.

Serves are arguably the easiest hit to do but a short serve isn't exactly easy.
For a good short serve
1- You have to keep it low. Low enough to prevent any offensive hit.
2- It has to travel just enough to be in front of the services line.
3 ( In doubles ) it keeps on player in front, the offensive formation, which leaves the sides vulnerable. So you have to hit a good short serve so the other side won't attack the holes.
since you can take your time. You should at least, position yourself carefully, mentally prepared and physically prepared. Me, i place my foot near the serve line, close to the T. I shake my racket a bit to stimulate the fore arm muscles and then position the shuttle in front of me with the racket behind. I take a breath and serve. So that I'm entirely ready for anything that comes after. A server that is served too quickly puts urself in a bad situation.
