If she stands out wide she doesn't have to serve wide. She can serve up the T or into the body. Besides you never said how bad her groundstrokes were. I assumed they were ok. If your partner has a weak serve and bad groundstrokes you are NOT going to win very many matches unless you can dominate on your own.
her groundstrokes are better than her net play. She hits a low flat groundstroke thats pretty good. I just need a way to convince her to stay back.
I agree that I may be better off staying back on her serve.
