Spin, spun, anywhich one...
I tried to learn Stan Smith's American Twist service reading from a book...Never did hit as big as ol' Stan...and without someone watching my toss (which migrated around, from toss to toss,) I eventually came up with a sidespin serve (which doesn't really fool anybody watching and reading my serve.
I've received serve against Mr. McEnroe ...or somebody who hits very much like him... and the wicked thing about his motion was that you could not "read" it. He disguised it beeeautifullly!!! :eek:
I hated to watch him...then I hated his witchcraft (after I figured out that I'd been boggled by it... :o )
