2) Standing in the ready position and moving into a crouch (I hope I spelled this right) position, He/She tosses the ball.
3) The Ball toss goes up, right when I get into a standing position on the baseline.
Are any of these scenarios illegal...I feel I need to be allow 2 seconds in the crouch position before the toss goes up. Am I wrong?
Just curious if people see a lot of 'gamesmanship' in use of the quick serve? I have yet to run into anyone that I was unable to slow down simply by politely signaling them to give me a moment to get set (holding hand up, nicely asking, turning back, etc..). I have run into some 'gamers' but none of them were quick servers.
