    If there is an obvious serve difference between partners and you are about to play a super breaker, do you normally have the better serve game serve first point or let the weaker serve game serve first? Or just keep same serve order on side.

    Just curious what other people do

    We normally keep serving on the same side as the final set. Unless there is a sun/glare problem then we usually switch to give the best server the best conditions to work with.

    It depends: if our team is to serve first in the super tie break I put up the weaker server (usually me) because I will only serve one point and let the better server get two full serves before I am forced to serve again. This is regardless if that means switching sides. But if the wind/sun is a factor we may change that up.

    If we do not serve first: stronger server will always serve first regardless if that means switching sides. Only if there is a sun/wind/other factor will we change that up so the person with the best serve has the better conditions.

    Once our serving sides are chosen .. We wil never change them.

    Usually I will seve from the sun side because I can adjust pretty easily.
