Hi Alois,

Tomokazu Harimoto has a fast service and most of them online call his serve the zap serve due to its speed. I have tried it so many times but the ball just goes out of the table and the foottap too is tough to coordinate. Any tips that you could provide to get it right with the foottap.

Thanks in advance coach.

Hi Sai,

The foot tap is not as important but the speed is generated by getting a flat contact.  The other important thing is to get the first bounce very close to you on your side of the table.  Finally hit the ball from very closer to the table.  If you listen to the sound of the ball hitting your bat and then the table there isn't any time between the two sounds.
