Hi guys, 

I know this have come up before on the site - whether or not it is legal to stamp during the service action.

I was wondering if it is still legal and do you have a copy of the official law regarding this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jasha,

There is no specific rule now but if it is seen as deliberately distracting your opponent then the umpire may call you.  However, you never really see it called by the umpires now.
