Hi Alois and Jeff,
I'm at a huge disadvantage in my game because i cant serve fast pendulum (or even a counterhit) serve during my game that would cover more length or goes down the line with great speed. even i do get the speed my chance of getting the serve on the table is like 1 in 10. can u gimme any tips as to how i can control my first bounce to land right in front of me and make it get more length and speed?
Two things to do. First put a piece of paper on the table on your side where you want the ball to bounce. Then just practice hitting the ball as fast as you can into that piece of paper. Don't even look at where the ball goes on the other side of the table. You can even score yourself as to how many times out of 10 you can hit that piece of paper.
Secondly after you have practiced that for a while you can start to focus on the full serve. This time though, try to hit the ball so that it lands just off the end of the other side. You can put the piece of paper on the floor this time, where you want the ball to land. Again you can score yourself out of 10. This will free you up to hitting the ball faster.
After you have done this for a while again you can focus on doing the fast long serve down the line.
See how you go with this process.
