You say your low toss in predictable. Maybe hit it wide left, then wide right, then straight at the opponent to confuse him. But each direction takes a different preparation, so don't confuse one with the other, or you're "
off balanced"..
Thanks for your help! Though, what I meant about predictable was that if I tossed the ball low, my opponent will know I will be serving either flat or slice, and definitely not a kicker or a twist.

Wouldn't it be ideal to toss the same way regardless of the type of serve I want to achieve? (How on earth do you hit a flat serve with the same toss as a kicker??)
