Hi guys,

Are you using serving with flanti and if so how and when dobyou it. What are you trying to achieve and what serve do you use?

Do you mean tricky, wileful serve?

Yes, I always look to surprize the opposite guy to death. I like this too much. So nice to feel oneself a devil of serving, is it ?

I do occasionally use a serve with the Storkraft, usually later in the match when it will have maximum effect.

I often serve with my spin rubber on the backhand side then twiddle right away to get the anti on the backhand. After giving a lot of variation of the spin using those motions, instead of using the spin rubber (Evolution MX-P in my case) I will use the exact same arm movement with the anti. Now, with a rubber that's got spin and grip you can brush the ball. If you do that with the anti you won't get the ball over the net. So you need to use the same motion and just come into and through the ball more. For example, I have a motion that gives a lot of back spin or side spin. If I use that same motion with the anti it will be dead and if my opponent is not paying attention I'll win the point outright, or get an easy pop-up to smash. In a way, I exaggerate the motion, to attempt to help disguise that I'm using the anti.

Only use it once in a while though; otherwise players get used to it. But at a key moment late in a game, it can be very valuable.

Short to his forehand more than likely or switch it up if I served a long side spin serve with inverted previously just to
Mimic the same moves but drop it to the opposite side short
