The sense "To serve again (e.g. a tennis ball)" at the Verb section. Other word may be utilized; "to have a second serve," etc. --Eveningmist 17:30, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

If we keep this sense then it should be under a separate pronunciation (and etymology?). I would always write re-serve, but the modern trend to omit even essential hyphens seems unstoppable. Dbfirs 13:49, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

RFV failed, sense removed. It seems plausible that someone might write it this way, but I couldn't find any evidence that anyone ever does. —RuakhTALK 21:58, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
