I really like self-feeding a bucket of balls to warm up solo before playing serious tennis with a partner. You can really focus on technique things you might be working, focus on hitting relaxed, focus on watching the ball into the strings, hitting lines, holding your racquet with a loose grip, etc. Good for breaking bad habits. Compared to hitting live balls you need to open your racquet face a little off dropped balls, so you might sky the first few your partner hits you after switching to a rally situation, but you can make that adjustment pretty quick without even thinking about it.
