1-2-3 return of serve

Today I played my first set since my latest bout with tennis elbow. I had a good opportunity to practice my return of serve. I use a 1-2-3 rhythm to return of serve. 1 is when the server hits the ball, 2 is when the ball bounces and 3 is when I hit it. This was very useful today because Daniel serves hard and I was able to return a number of his serves deep into his court.

Practice and Competition Report: hit with Daniel for 1 1/2 hrs., we played two rally games and one set: 15-10, 15-9, 6-4.
Success Analysis: I won both rally games and the set, I came back from 2-4 to win the set.
