I'm not a big believer in putting the stronger returner on the ad side. I find this leads to the stronger returner having to save a lot of ad in points and generally playing from behind in the game. I like to put the stronger returner on the deuce side to so he's receiving in the neutral situations (e.g. 0-0 or 30-all) to get ahead in the game, create more break opportunities, and put more pressure on the server. Unless you're playing a clutch big server this can also result in seeing more serves that the weaker returner can get into play or even attack.
