On an important point if they miss the first serve pretend you have broken a string and walk over to change racquets. When you return the momentum is lost for their second serve and they have no right to ask
for two serves.
This suggestion is unethical and shows very poor sportsmanship
This is absolutely rediculous and his horrible sportsmanship. Behavior like this will earn you a very bad reputation among tennis players very fast.
This is incorrect. In Friend At Court, the USTA handbook of rules and regulations, it clearly states in USTA Comment 21:7 if the receiver was not ready between 1st and 2nd serve because of something within the receiver's control (broken string) the server gets two serves.
In a tournament that would be considered as really inappropriate behaviour.
You might get away with it once, but it's really terrible advice for new players.
This goes against the spirit of "The Code" in tennis which is a governing set of rules and fair play standards... that all players are expected to practice. Instead, have the character to give the return of serve your best effort and discard the gamesmanship.
