Hi, coach and fellow TT players!

This time I want to ask about the best backhand serve. I think the backhand serve is one of the easiest serve to learn, and thus, making it quite common serve besides the pendulum. Besides, it is also easy to vary the spin, making it quite hard to return. My question is, who possesses the most effective and/or most beautiful backhand serve? Personally, I think Dimitrij Ovtcharov is the player of the craft in both category, but I also watched a video where Timo Boll did his backhand serve, and it was also good looking as well. So what do you think?

Hi Erriza,

I think at the moment it is Ovtcharov, even though it is a bit strange looking.  Primorac had a good one too.

.It will be interesting to hear others thoughts.

i really like jorgen persson's and JO waldners backhand serves! they get so much variation and yet their techniques are really simple!
