That would be so nice if it happened like that. My thinking exactly. In fact, I don't even want to show my opponent my best shot or serve during warm-up... I WANT to hit everything exactly back to him... that is my aiming warm-up to hit it exactly back. I don't want him to see that I can hit the lines or serve down the T or out wide.
