It is easy for me to serve a fast long ball and a short slow ball. What adjustments should be made in order to serve a slow long ball and a short fast ball?
Thanks in advance...
To serve a slow long ball you can slow down the contact on the ball and get the ball to bounce a little higher over the net.
To serve a short fast ball is a little trickier. You need a good fast contact on the ball but you also need a lot of spin. A lot of topspin will bring the ball down quickly as soon as it goes over the net. This does take a lot of practice.
The best way to do it is to set up a small target just over the net and try to serve the ball as fast as possible onto that target.
