Personally i find a SMART server is harder to play against then a BIG server. Smart servers have to have a good amount of pace as well though.
I totally agree with you on this one! I can get back peoples bomb's, but a slice serve that really stretches me out I sometimes have issues with.
I Believe the OP meant for "big server" was someone with a really heavy and fast serve!
