I don't find kick serves a problem. They always seem to be angling out and counter spin works. This guy's spin is very straight. The counter spin would be to hit it perfectly up with a horizontal racket, which is not possible.
I think it is too difficult to explain and this guy is not like anyone you might have encountered.
