Case A: Serve first ...
Case B: Receive first ...

Please discuss.

***************************

To clarify, I meant to ask which player has the best chance defeating himself.
You could discuss assuming he serves first or receives first.
Sorry for the confusion.

Well it depends entirely on whether you're a stronger server or stronger receiver, and who you're playing.

There is no general rule.
Nadal used to always choose to receive. He's changed that lately.

But one thing--I think playing from behind has to be harder, presuming you play even.

Start receiving diminishes your chances.

you can go easier 0-3 down and the psychological effect is devasting if you arent mentally strong.

I see, so a mentally weak player in general.
