How to make the return slow

Hi Alois,

When I serve and make a 3rd ball topspin, it's kind of in the middle-hard [even though I kind of mastered the FH topspin] because the push off a heavy backspin serve zips a little too fast for what I like. This is true for the no spin, too, but not as much [and I have no idea why it also happens to the no spin]. How can you stop this?

Thx, Ian

Hi Ian,

If you like the return coming slower to you, you can try serving with less speed and keeping the ball low  This will make it difficult for your opponent to generate much speed with the return.  You need to keep it low otherwise they will be able to flick or push fast.
