I know you're not supposed to toss it towards you and that it should be as vertical as possible but do you toss it right in front of you or should it be tossed slightly to the side of you, as in towards your bat.
When I watch videos this is what people seem to be doing, but I'm not sure. Maybe this is why I sometimes don't get much spin because it's harder to get that brushing action in front of my body?
For a Pendulum serve you do toss the ball up slightly towards your right hip for a right hander. This gets the ball into a better hitting zone. It is difficult to swing with your forearm and wrist if the ball is directly in front of you.

Thanks Alois. I'm a lefthander so my left hip then. I assume it's the same for the backspin serve. What about for the serve Par Gerell uses?
