What is the right finish position for the backhand sidespin serve?

Hi Kaustubh,

The bat should finish across and to the side of your body.  For a right hander to the right of your body and around shoulder height with your wrist fully extended through.

We show this serve in our Serving Secrets lesson in Backhand Serve lesson.

The bat should be near to the shoulder or away from the shoulder?

When I finish it away from the shoulder I get problem in recovering for the next shot.

It will be away from the shoulder but at that height.
