Hard time getting into groove
In real matches I have a tough time getting into the speed of the game until a couple games in (though my warm-up is great). Can I fix this using the bounce-hit-bounce technique to keep me concentrated and would it make ANY sense to choose to RETURN serve? My thought process is even if I lose the first game (which I have a good chance of since I'm not into it yet), we're still on serve and I can just "sacrifice" this game (which he logically should win) in order to get used to returning serves and the speed of rallies. As opposed to losing my serve and then not being ready for his service game.
