Re: How many times do you bounce the ball before serving?

2-3 times

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: How many times do you bounce the ball before serving?

5 times before a first serve, twice before a second serve.

If I hit a first serve let I will bounce 3 times or if I hit a second serve let I bounce 7 times.

Also before my first serve I bounce between my legs once like Isner before doing my 5 bounces.

I also bounce the ball with my racquet until my opponent is ready.

Mostly I do not bounce. But sometimes I do 2-5 bounces and I don't know why

Twice. I'm used to that, so anything else feels weird.

0-3. It doesn't even enter my mindset when I'm playing.

3 times for a first serve, and 2 times for a second serve. I sometimes mix it up though so my opponents do not get on a comfortable rhythm returning.

Re: How many times do you bounce the ball before serving?

I subconsciously copied Aga's exact routine:
Blow into your right hand to dry off sweat
Spin grip in hand once or twice till it feels perfect
Bounce three times then meet ball to racket.
So weird how I copied it, but it feels so good!
