Hey Alois,
You recently answered a question about the the pendulum serve which helped a lot. Now I was wondering if there are any other good serves for shorter people I could learn.

Hi Dan,

The Tomahawk serve is good if you are shorter.  Many players when doing this bend their knees low to get into a low position to do it.  If you are short, you are half way there.

Alois, im 1,80

Am I a bit high to do the tomahawk? I use it as my main serve but, as you said, i have to bend my knees.

You aren't too tall to do it, it just takes a bit more effort to get down low.
