In this video, top coach and service expert, Craig Bryant, explains how to do effective service combinations.
You have two serves. What serves should you do to put your opponent under maximum pressure? There are so many options. But are there any combinations which work particularly well together?
Yes! Most definitely.
In the video, Craig gives these examples…
- Short to the backhand / long to the forehand
- Short backspin / short no spin
- Sidespin with backspin / sidespin with topspin
Craig gives some tips on how use these combinations to create confusion and win some cheap points or set up easy third ball attacks.
