What is the effect if I serve long backhand using my long pips ox to my opponent? Is the ball rotating top spin? Likewise with the short pips ox. I mean, when I serve short backspin with my short pips ox, does the ball rotates top spin? My understanding is, if I chop serve with either the lp ox and sp ox it goes backspin.
One of my better player in my club, told me not to chop serve. He said if I chop, the ball will bends the pips thus it acts like smooth surface rubber. Also the ball will not wobble.
I am confuse now. Please clarify for me.
When you serve with the short pips the ball will get some backspin but not as much as with inverted rubber.
When you serve with long pips ox the ball will have little or no spin because the longer pips don't grip the ball. Because of the inertia of the ball as it travels forward it will start rotating slightly forward.
