What is a good way to predict if a serve will go short or long?
Rather than predict, try to watch the flight of the ball all the way through.
You will pick up a few cues from the backswing of the server and also then you will see the bounce and flight of the ball.
By putting all of this information together we get a picture of where the ball is likely to land on the second bounce.
It takes all of that information and then lot of practice to get this to a stage where you are confidently judging the length of the ball.
