Adding More Spin - 17:45

Hao Jun: Hi, I am having the problem of adding more sidespin or backspin to either my pendulum serve or reverse pendulum serve or the backhand serve or the reverse tomahawk serve, and the only serve where I can have the most sidespin is the tomahawk serve.

Warm Up Before Tournament Match - 19:44

Carl: With all the incoming tournament activity upcoming for me, a question that popped into my mind was: which of these two situations would be more optimized for a warm up before the tournament starts? Warm up and rest or warm up and play straight away?
