    That was like my second post or something on the thread - that topspin can be produced by going up and down from 11 to 5 and not from below, as both rotate the ball in the same direction. But then toly found that it was not really being hit that way. So yes it can be done but not happening here, and the 11-5 should be treated as "feel" only.

    For me at least, this video has finally cleared up the issue of pronation on kick serves.
    Thanks for posting this. I like Tennis Oxygen videos in general, but hadn't seen this one
