Master Rosario,

Which contact of the ball I must to touch for topspin serve (more up-spin) with tomahawk service?

Bottom, middle or top of the ball?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Il,

To get topspin on the Tomahawk serve, hit the top of the ball or brush more upwards on the back of the ball.

By turing your bat over so that the hitting side is facing more towards the floor you will get the bat at the right angle to generate topspin.

We have just re-filmed the Tomahawk serve lesson in our Serving Secrets section.  Watch out for the new release shortly.
