That may be true for AA-3 but this was a A-4 and some run of the mill guy serving but was hitting his spots at times. My main focus was though where she should be and where she should be facing when I'm returning.

There is too big of a difference when someone faces women's serves most of the year to facing a former college guy's serves for a few weeks.
I think that women pretty much have to guess and hope they guess right. But even then there are going to be games where they don't end up touching the ball when returning and that is just part of what they have to accept playing mixed.
