i don't face strong serves at my level (non-pros always overestimate how hard they serve imo).

I usually try to take a swing at the 1st serve (abbreviated for the stronger ones). I attack 2nd serves nearly every time on both wings. Mostly cross-court, but will throw the odd down-the-line to mix things up. I should block more on 1st serves to be more competitive, but i can't resist swinging.

I find that I make too many unforced errors on dink serves because i have too much time and my eye ends up wandering to where i want the ball to go. i need to focus on the ball more and not aim for corners\lines as much.
