Re: What do you do when facing break points?

Go defensive and not let any ball get away no matter how shitty my return will be. Got to get them to hit an off balance one at some point, and then try hit a winner at some stage. I also avoid my backhand like the plague.

Go for first serve (miss it most the time )

Then push, slice, push some more, and try to use a lot of topspin on my forehand and keep the balls high and in the corners or short on an angle

Depends. If I have been serving to their weaker side a lot, I sometimes like to go for a shock factor and serve to their strength. But for the most part I make them try to win that point with their worst shot, constantly hitting into that corner of the court until I get a ball I can put away.

Re: What do you do when facing break points?

I hit a safe first serve, because if it's a second serve, then because of nerves, it's easy to hit a DF, which would be super irritating on a BP
And body serves work too!

I like to go all out facing break points. I face them all the time lol. It makes me feel better that I can rely on a good return game for the next game.
