These 2 men co-authored Technical Tennis
which talks about spiralspin
in some depth. They also collaborated with physicist, Howard Brody to write The Physics and Technology of Tennis
. In the following TWU article, Physics of the Tennis Kick Serve
, Rod Cross talks a bit about gyrospin (aka spiralspin or corkscrew spin).
Thanks for the information, and sorry that I deleted my post. I can get too carried away when talking of physics and I fear that I will sacrifice my own privacy.
I will continue following the thread.
