In this video FH segment, it seems like Djo implies that the semi-/near open stance & WW & hitting off the inside leg is only used when time is limited, and thus, not as powerful as if he has time to set up in a more closed stance and hit forward. Am I correct?

you know, the commentators at espn2 always criticize some players for tossing the ball too high but in this clip, djokovic says you should toss the ball high :shock:

yeah but in the clip, djokovic says you have to toss the ball high so that you have time for the legs action but the commentators at espn2 say you should hit the ball before it drops (meaning not a high ball toss at all).

seems like two different school of thoughts on the service toss to me.

check out this video of djokovic serving. he tossed the ball super high and hit the ball as it dropped down.

I have got to try this to see which method works best for me. i have always been hitting the ball before it drops. :)

I use this method. High toss. Always have. Works great indoors or on a calm day but if I am fighting the wind, look out.

yep. that's the main reason why the commentators at espn2 say players should not have a high ball toss when serving but they aren't ranked number 4 in the world like djokovic and djokovic recommends a high ball toss (and he even emphasizes that it is important to do so when serving) :)

you know, i have always heard people recommending a low ball toss. this is the first time i heard someone recommending a high ball toss.

all thing equal, a high ball toss will give you more power because of the speed generated by the falling ball.
