    What are some of your favorite serves to go to when you need an ace?
    My favorite is the flat serve out wide in the ad court. That gets them almost every time, and if it isn't an ace, I will often follow it in to put away a weak return. It is fast, going away from them, and to the backhand, what could be better than that?

    I like to go opposite of where my opponent is standing if they are cheating left or right. Usually they cheat to their right, so up the T Ace on the deuce court feels good when I let it rip. But any ace feels good, especially those sharp angles ones with some slice out wide from the deuce side. I haven't really figured out how to hit aces with a kick serve yet. I probably most enjoy the ace where I hit the guy in the foot on the fly. Those are the kind I can laugh about for days and they show you have some serious speed on your serve if even a quick guy can't get out of the way.

    Swinging slice to deuce court out wide. You know that they are getting further and further away from the ball but they keep trying. lol.

    I had to vote other because you don't have up the middle on the deuce side as an option.

    Though I do like aces, what I enjoy more good unreturnable kicker, doesnt have to be an ace..

    I really like to slice out wide on the deuce court. When I'm on I can on occasion hit a truly unreturnable ball because of the proximity of the side netting (indoors). They get called "out" a lot though because they are moving fast and hitting short in the box near the line.

    It's also satisfying when you hit the hard, flat serve up the T for an ace, but the slice is truly confounding for many opponents.

    Kicker outwide, cause my opponent will be admiring it, and so will I.
