I noticed this advertisement while watching the recent Masters golf tournament. Phil Mickelson at 0:40 offers a tip to "serve to her forehand." I strongly disagree with Phil's coaching advice as the receiver's stance indicates she's prepared for a fh ball, but would be totally unprepared for a serve to her backhand, especially in those high heels. Even if it were good advice, it's something you would say softly to your player near the back barrier, not so close to the table so her opponent can probably hear it and know where the serve will go. Stick to golf, Phil.

We need to build a ball to keep the illegal servers from entering our tournaments.

Furthermore,  judging by the server's choice of playing outfit and even just playing location, from that stance she was always going to serve to the forehand. Clever mindgames loudly telling her to serve where she was already going anway: gives the server confidence she'd made the right choice whilst the receiver will now expect it to the backhand.
