I love it when people are ignorant enough to go for aces though as it gives me a lot of second serves to return.
I try to make people stretch and keep them guessing. Sometimes, this leads to aces, especially when they guess wrong.
I love people who don't make any effort to move their serve around, thinking they can just overpower me or flumox me with spin. Those are easy return games.
