I noticed on your pendulum serves that you hit the ball quite close to your body. Is this a personal thing or do you gain more control and spin by doing this?

Hi Bevan,

You do get more control closer to the body.  I guess my serve is also from the old days when you could hide the contact and hitting it closer to your body helped you with this as well.
