So, I know that the first person to serve in a game is decided either by coin toss or by rock-paper-scissors and about how 2 serves are given to each player per rotation (1 serve during deuce). After someone wins a set, who serves at the start of the next set?
Thanks in advance
At the start of the match the umpire will toss a coin, and whoever wins the toss can decide whether to choose the end, or choose whether to serve or return. If they choose to take a particular end then the other player gets to choose who serves or receives. Once it has been decided who serves, then this alternates at the start of each subsequent set. So if you serve in the first set, your opponent will serve at the start of the second, and it will be back to you serving at the start of the third.
Let me know if this clears up the rule.
