I've been working on both my pendulum serve and reverse pendulum serve. Your videos always show these serves being done from the corner of the table. Is it a good idea to adjust this starting position to the middle or far corner to get some more variety in the trajectory of the serve? Is there a weakness to this that I should be looking to exploit if my opponent serves from another position?
Most players serve from the backhand corner because it allows them to then move forward into position for the next ball.
I think it is a very good idea to vary the position of the serve sometimes. It is a simple variation that adds something else for the receiver to adjust to.
If your opponent serves these serves the best thing is to target their wider backhand on teh return as they will often leave a gap there.
