Tough call on the second one. If he lands before he hits the ball, then no. But as long as he hits the ball before he lands, it's completely legal.

His was perfectly legal, but if he had taken a running start, it would have been illegal.

funny how he switches his hands in between!
quite distracting for the other guy. wonder if this is his regular serve or does it just for kicks.

Wow. Thats something i've never seen before.

Definitely a volleyball player, and from what i can tell it is actually legal.

There's a pro who does this serve named Brian Battistone.

It looks like his racquet only has one handle to me... :confused:

Haha, wow, his serve looks reeally fast too. I think the two videos posted by the two posters is actually the same player. Both videos have that two handled custom racquet.

Yeah there was already a thread on this before. His racket has two handles and he changes hands to serve.
