i usually plan where i want to hit the ball and then react the serve.

1st Serves:
i also usually expect people to serve to my backhand on first serves, so i plan on returning with that grip and then react accordingly (changing grips if the serve is to my forehand).

2nd Serves:
If the server has a weak one, then i'll hit an inside out forehand or backhand, depending on which side of the court. I'll hit cross court and hard.

If the server has a good one, i'll return as I do the 1st serve.
