yesterday as a joke i said i was going to stop returning first serve balls that were out back into the net (where they wont bother anyone) because i didn't want to groove that stroke. I thought it was funny at the time but it might make sense. from now on those balls wont be touched by me. Maybe i'lll catch em.

I normally take such a big swing at returning serves I cant actually "catch" the ball. If it is a slow ball I just let it go by if its a fast serve I just hit it like normal.

I think you should always attack the ball like its going to be in. If you dont prepare because you think its going to be out and it skids off the line you wont be ready.
