that's how you play the lefty - it's really no big deal, duece court wide slice, use that on every serve.
Not so! I've been a lefty server for 40 years and know better. I get a lot of mileage spinning the ball into the body on the FH side on the ad side. A righty can often do the same thing to a lefty on the deuce side. I would actually prefer a serve to my BH out wide on the deuce side. Now if it's an extreme short, wide serve that's another matter.

It really depends what level you are talking about.
