I wanted some advice on one of my serves
I can toss the ball in the air as high
as I like!!! AND hit the ball at what seems to be an awkward position!
With my right hand nearest to the table and hit with the bat nearly horizontal but with a slight slant downwards
When I hit the ball, I put a *lot* of backspin on
See this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4zcZW9R ... re=related
In the very first few seconds she tosses the ball really high
Now imagine I'm facing the opposite way and hitting standing from the right hand side
Does that make any sense??
I couldn't find any exact same examples
Now, the thing is, I thought, the higher I throw the ball, the more downward force I have!!
So, therefore the more backspin I get!!
Most players: I confuse the heck out of them and they *really* struggle (even after trying to hit back the same serve on many occasions!)
Experienced players: they'll give a long yawn before hitting back
Some of them have advised me not to waste my energy tossing so high if what I want to do is put spin on
They've also said that there's is actually no spin on the ball!No spin on the ball
? That makes no sense to me! The problem is each time I make the serve, I can't do it the same consistently each time - sometimes I 'think' I put an immense amount of spin on while other times not so
Should I bother throwing up so high? It's actually quite a hard serve IMHO!
Any advice would be great
