What are the modifications to be made?

Hi Dhruv,

Yes you can do this.  You need to tilt your bat further back to generated the backspin.  ALso slow the forward momentum down so that the ball grips better to come back.

I tried that and placed the bat almost parallel to the table...but the thing is ball has too much height and can be smashed easily.....its very hard to get the right amount of contact consistently and m finding it very difficult to keep the height low!Can you put up a video demonstrating this lin's is a populr serve and I am sure many players would benefit from ths.Thanks.

It will take a bit of practice to get this contact right.

How about you bend your knees?

Bending isn’t the important part to get the contact and serve right, but you should do it in a game situation so that you can recover for the next ball.
