Hi Jeff and Alois,
One of the serves I like most is the pendulum serve, because with a slight flick of the wrist, you can change the spin from backspin, to sidespin, to topspin, and those variations get me a lot of points with my main tactic, attacking on my forehand on a third ball. However, I also quite like the tomahawk serve, and I am capable of getting a lot of spin with it. The problem with this is the only variations I can do with it are to serve with my antispin, or to out some backspin on it. Unfortunately, these changes are blatantly obvious to my opponents and it can cost me many points. So, my question to you is: are there any more subtle variations in the Tomahawk serve, possibly with topspin? I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks and warm regards,
When using the Tomahawk serve you can get some more subtle variations but not the great variations and amount of spin as you can on the Pendulum serve.
You can get some topspin on the serve and also backspin so it is a matter of just making slight changes to the amount and type of spin on the tomahawk serve.
There is also the Tomahawk and Reverse Tomahawk serves like Kenta and Ding Ning do it where they really swing hard at the ball.
