Hi, I have seen some players who raise their non-playing hand when serving harder, isn't it illegal? beacause you are not allowed to hide the ball behind your arm.
AN EXAMPLE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmHMV9OYRz4&t=305s
It is hard to tell from the angle of the footage but you are not allowed to hide the contact of the ball with your free hand.
It is a rule that is difficult for the umpires to judge from where they are sitting as well.
