Hi Mahmoud,

Try hitting the ball from a lower height.  Perhaps you are not allowing it to drop enough after you throw it up.  To get more spin, contact the ball a bit flatter.

To practice serving lower take  aloof at our lesson on Keeping The Ball Low.  This will help you to focus on the height of your serving.

The serve is basically a Pendulum serve.  We have lots of other tips on the Pendulum serve in our Serving Secrets course as part of our Premium Membership.

but actually backspin service always comes low if there is a high toss.
