Which serve do you hit the most aces with, on average?

I mean in terms of direction. For me, it's a flat one out wide to the backhand on the ad-court. Can catch a lot of people off-balance when they're leaning to their right expecting to bunt the ball back on the forehand.

I'm a lefty, and it's probably the out-wide serve on the deuce court.

Kicker out-wide, especially from the deuce court.

Big slice out wide on the deuce court, especially when they are shorter in length as well. Also not aces but get a lot of success with body serves, love slicing it into opponents and giving no room

Re: Which serve do you hit the most aces with, on average?

Wide serve kick serve out wide or a flat serve out wide. down the line is affective aswell . i find it quite funny when i get some bad players that stand really wide to protect there backhand ( I am a lefty) and i just bang it down the line out to there forhand and they don't move.

Re: Which serve do you hit the most aces with, on average?

Slice serve out wide on the deuce side and flat serve out wide on the ad side both work for me best in terms of getting aces.

Slice serve out wide and flat serve down the T, both on deuce side (obviously I'm a righty )

Down the T flat. I never aim my serves though, which is kind of sad, because I'm a very high-level player

Deuce slice out wide. Especially in doubles I can get a ridiculous angle on it, despite being only 175.

Out wide ad court sometimes and that's my favorite and probably fastest serve, but because I use it so much I can a couple times a match sneak a 50 MPH ace down the T
