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 donīt know if he has to go back in a straight line or he has to sidestep.
Hope you can use this!!
