Long Pimples for Modern Defenders - 9:45

Top of the Bounce - 12:08

Chris: If I serve underspin and they recieve with a push long is there a height where you should switch from topspinning as the ball is falling to topspinning at the top of the bounce?

Rubber Thickness - 14:40

Amber: I wanted to know what are the differences in terms of 1. spin 2. speed 3. blocking for rubber with 1.8,1.9 and max. Which is recommended for backhand? I do not do lot of backhand topspin.

Hiding your Bat - 16:17

Bennett: I know its illegal to hide the ball during the service, but if I’m using two different rubbers, could I hide the bat behind my back right before the serve and as the toss is coming down i reveal my rubber giving my opponent less time to read it?

Brock: Hey, my rival gets better everytime I meet him. He said that him and his buddy did 15.000 counterhits in a row, I think he beat your record Alois :(
