Please explain how Ovtcharov does his serve and why.
Take a look at our previous video response to an Ask the Coach question about the Ovtcharov serve. I think this will show you a little more about how he does it.
It certainly is an interesting approach. I am not sure why he does it but perhaps it gives him a better feel for swinging through the serve to generate more spin and then get him into his ready position.

I can answer that. He started playing as a child when he was a lot smaller but as he grew taller he still felt more comfortable with his upper body at the same height in relation to the table at the beginning of the serve.
