You already know which serve the server is attempting. You have seen his second serve bounce height, and know it's time of travel. You only need a quick shoulder turn, slight takeback, and swing.
You should be practicing your serves. When you practice your serves, your partner practices his returns of your serves. TRY THINGS. In practice, percentage play is not needed. You need to push your limits, then reign back for match play.
You can never tell how hard you can serve if you're always worried about getting the ball IN.
Thanks, Lee!
