Who knows the most common - to show which side the player will move, e.g. during Aus/i formation?

"The first signal given by the net person will tell her/his serving partner where to serve the ball (wide, center or down the T). The server will audibly agree or disagree with this serve "command." The second signal. again given by the net person, will inform the serving partner whether he or she intends on poaching. Again, an audible response comes from the server. I recommend speaking to each other before the point to settle these questions, rather than using hand signals (given by the net person behind his/her back). However, if you arrive at the net and desire a change from the agreed plan...and before second serves... hand signals can be most helpful."

I have been looking over various sites, and I think that typical signals are: closed fist means stay; open palm means poach, index finger extended means fake poach.
