We have a right handed player, he is a child 9, not very tall.
His serve is usually (from the left) (1)a short back-spin forehand pendulum(very flat) down the line or (2) a side-spin middle-long tomahawk to the backhand (RH opponent) or to the middle. (3) From the right he serves a short back-spin tomahawk to the oponent FH (RH player)
We need to develope a long serve to surprise from time to time.
The pendulum serve is not easy for him.
Which service do you think is suitable for him to work on?
Which method to follow?
Thank you very much
I think the Tomahawk serve is easiest for shorter players. The Pendulum serve is difficult because of their height.
He can serve this long as well with a bit more speed on his swing.
Because he can hit the ball from above shoulder height he will be able to get the ball to bounce on the table correctly. Get him to hit the ball down close to him on his owen side.
