Hi Alois

I had this in mind for a long time that why do most of the top players bang their foot while having contact with the ball on serve.

Hi Ashish,

It is usually just part of their service action.  In the past players used to do it to disguise the sound of the contact as well which makes it harder for the receiver to tell what spin is on the ball.

I agree alois. I was at one of my tournametns and asked the player who i was playing that and she said the same thing

One of my teammates said that he uses the stomp in order to scare his opponents or something like that.

And sometimes it seems to work,as he is strong and his stamp is quite loud.

But is it an accident or can be true what he says?

Or is he just making fun from me?
