Re: Serve or Receive?

I usually serve just because people told me to. I probably have a better return these days.

If I am feeling adventurous I sometimes choose to receive.

Re: Serve or Receive?

Serve, of cource. We are no pros, who think they might have advantage in 7th or 9th game.
Every game is worth one game. Serving first is advantage for every amateur.

Re: Serve or Receive?

Serve.

I prefer the return game, but don't want my opponent to serve first, taking away that advantage.

Re: Serve or Receive?

Always serve, especially if I know its going to be a tight match. Its much better to ahead 5-4 than trailing 4-5.

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Re: Serve or Receive?

Receive because I like to get a little warmed up and gage my opponent during the 1st game.

Re: Serve or Receive?

I used to receive, but nowadays the level i play in is much stronger and serving second is not at all a good thing anymore.
