Hi Alois,

Whenever I watch Ma Lin serve, I find it not only impressive on how much speed, and spin is on the serve, but also how well he disguises it.  Not even the best can return it without hitting a high return at least some of the time. Could you recommend some effective tactics on hiding the serve?  (Legally, of course :)

Thanks in advance, Devin

Hi Devin,

A lot of his disguise is to do with the subtle changes to the contact.  He also has a very fast racket movement which makes it difficult to see exactly what he has done.

Our Serving Secrets course goes through the principles of changing spin which would also help.
