How many times do you bounce the ball before serving?

For me it's 5 times before a first serve, 3 times before a second.

Before 1st serve - 7 times - first 1 with the hand, then 3 with the racket and 3 with the hand again
Before 2nd serve - 2-3 times

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

3 at the most.

Usually I bounce it twice when I lose a point/serve. I bounce it once if I win a point/serve

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

Certainly not as many times as The Jock I usually bounce the ball 3-4 times with my racket, not with my hand . Am I the only one who does this outside of my family ?

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

I have a weird methodical bounce system these days, which includes saying the score haha.

Typically on the first serve, I'll alternate bouncing with my hand then racket three times each (hand to ball, racket to ball x3), then I'll say the score, then i'll do a traditional three ball bounce with my hand then serve.

On the second serve i'll just do the three bounces, unless I had to move out of position to move the fault ball or move out of my service zone for any reason, in which case I'll do the hand ball racket ball triple again haha.

I'm pretty deliberate.

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

Depends if I'm serving well or not...if I'm serving shit then I'll bounce four times and think to myself "Oh damn, I have to serve another double fault."
