Hi, Alois

Why does some players clean (or dry, don't know what they do) the table before starting a match?

And other question:

What you think is better, to do the reverse pendulum serve, or to do it short?

Hi Arturo,

They clean the table to make sure there is not bits on there that will effect the bounce of the ball.  Even a small bit of rubber left on the table can effect the bounce.

The reverse pendulum serve can be short.  If you can do the reverse short it is better.
