Tennis Tips: Amping Up Your Return of Serve

Here are some tips to begin to make your return game a winner.

First=React/Second=Attack

This is a simple mantra to undertake when you are first attempting to amp up your return game. On the first serve, simply react and get the ball back in play. On the second serve, attack the ball with an aggressive shot. Why? Assume that most first serves will hit with more authority, and therefore more difficult to attack. Trying to attack these more powerful serves with any sort of consistency will be extremely difficult, and you'll end up giving away more points because of errors. The second serve is generally hit with not as much pace, giving you a chance to attack with a great margin for error. You want to take it to your opponent's second serve if you can because it's your first opportunity to cause some waves in a point.

Craft Your Return Around Your Game

Once you get into a rhythm, you'll want to begin to craft your return game to fit in with your natural style of play. All of the greats do this. For example, Pete Sampras had a serve that was so good that you were always under pressure to hold yours. He would either simply get the return in play, or try to force the issue if the set was nearing a close. He wasn't a pressed to play a dangerous return game as someone like Andre Agassi was. Agassi return was deadly; however, he didn't have a monster of a serve to use on his opponent. He had to take much more advantage of his chances to do damage on the return. Learn how you like to play, and craft your return game to match your strengths and weaknesses.

Mind Games

The mind is an important part of the game of tennis. If you can get into your opponent's head during their service games, you'll have an advantage. For example, if your opponent's first serves become weaker as a match progresses, start treating it like a second serve. On second serves, step closer to the service box to put pressure on their service. Even if you miss the return, you'll make the person on the other side of the net think twice when they step to the line on the serve. You'll be surprised how many free points you'll get just by making your opponent think a little more than usual.

Flash Isn't Everything

As impressive as the return winners you see on television are, they are only worth one point. It's more likely that you'll miss those shots more times than not. Don't always aim for the lines; aim for about a foot inside the line to give yourself room for error. Use the return to set up the rest of the point. For example, if you play well at the net, you may not have to try to go for a winner off the return. Try hitting a slice and charging the net. It may not be the flashiest way to win a point, but the main thing is that you won a point.
