I would say 4 times or until I gather my thoughts after a long rally, so like 4 to 6 times.

2-3 bounces. My serve isn't my best attribute.

About 5-6 times but I do quick bounces.

Three bounces while breathing in, breathe out, toss the ball while breathing in, breathe out on impact.

Literally, once.

I used to bounce the ball about 10-15 times but I got a lot of complaints plus my serve was pretty lousy back then, so I retooled it and changed it to one bounce. Serve is better than ever.

Between 3 and 5, depends on how much "calming down" I need to do prior to starting the point.

Between 3 and 12.

I CANNOT serve if I don't bounce the ball.

I have never really counted, 3 usually unless someone is taking there time.

bounce the ball with my racket a few times at the baseline before I serve, but before I start the actual motion I bounce the ball once.

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

None. I just kick the strings of my racket a couple of times then spin the racket in my hand till I get a certain side of the frame to show. It's kind of a good luck thing, I do it before all of my points.

3 before 1st serve. I usually don't get a 2nd serve
