Allyot asked 3 years ago

1 – underspin(backspin)
2-side under spin
3 – side spin
4-side top spin
5- top spin
I do not think that, for example, the sheepdogs served the same food, although he watched the training of his innings, he served where he served, since it seems to me that it was just a side spin

Hi Allyot, I’m not exactly sure what you’re asking here but if you mean what serves do the pro players like timo etc do then usually a wide variety. Mostly they will serve some variety of sidespin with either backspin or topspin to try and deceive the opponent. Ovcharov serves with a lot of sidespin and slightly longer to try to get a weak return to attack or counter topspin. Obviously service is quite an individual area of the game that works around your personal strengths, so experiment to see what works best for you!

I probably did not explain this. What rotation does Dmitry Ovcharov use in his service? Or the same Timo Ball. I just see how it is received, very strange. In general, Dmitry Ovcharov how often does a service?. Only side spin or some backspin and top spin. When I watch the training of his innings, it seems that just ordinary SIDE SPIN.I’m looking at the direction of the service. But if it were only side spin rotation then it was powerful to knock down the discount and that’s all, because the rotation of side spin

It depends heavily on situation and opponent. Of course they can produce a variety of spin and placements which serves best for match. Some serves work well with this player but not with the others. Your question is very general.

Yes that’s right, players will change the spin and direction of their serves a lot depending on the situation and what is working well for them. So it’s very hard to say exactly what spin Dima is doing at a specific time.
