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

I don't think about it. I might instictively bounce the ball a few times, but I have no real routine.

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

Before my first serve I always bounce ball between legs just like Isner and then three times by hand...before second only three times by hand...

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

None. I stopped bouncing the ball 2 years ago(there's a reason but it would take to long to tell you) so now i just serve when i get the ball, also it cayhes your opponent out a lot, because theyre standing there waiting on you to bounce the ball and when you serve straight away, theyre like, Oh Shit! and panic. I have won loads of points this way

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

Bouncing the ball before serving gives me time to reset myself and decide upon the plan of action. Normally, I do it 6 times before the first serve and 3 for the second.

Always three times. Well, rarely two or five but never ever four times! Superstition.

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

Three before first serves. Two before second.
My thinking: 1 (first serve) + 2 (second serve) = 3
2 (second serve) = 2
