I rarely see a short court warm ups at tournaments. Generally 3-4 minutes full court groundies. 2 minutes each or so at net. 2 minutes for serves. You are right about catching the balls. Unless it's near the end of the serve warm-up, I can't stand when someone returns my warm-up serves because then I don't know whether to keep serving or hit them back.
Ditto. Drives me nuts. Now when somebody returns my serve I just keep hitting serves until they start catching them. Then I'll crack returns back if I'm done serving. It's only fair that when my opponent thinks warm ups is the place to "practice" returning my 3/4 speed serve, that I get the same chance.
