      These are juvenile faults when compared to serial offenders like Fegerl, Lebesson and Yoshimura.

      Maybe but not always. And the rule that enables those offenders is the one being violated. The Samsonov pendulum shows you can change your orientation if you really want to. But if people do not want to serve beside or in front of their bodies, you can't eliminate hidden serves.

      How much does the body rotation contribute to the quality of the serves for somebody like Mima? 0%? 50? In between? I have no idea, but I think it contributes something significant, at the margins they are dealing with.

      Since my posts are never clear, let me qualify in advance. How much spin does body rotation contribute? Not quality by virtue of hiding, quality in the ball produced independent of any receiver.

      Anybody else think it's refreshing to see Ma Long playing a more tactful, less physical game this tournament? Only watching highlights but it seems he's really being surgically precise with his placement and not really trying to hit the ball through his opponent and the wall behind them.

      I have always felt you went too far embedding. Just posting the links is sufficient.

      I wanted to get my subscriber count up to enable more features.

      Ito looks rather calm and satisfied in the interview.

      LGL gave CM pointers. We seriously need to ban him for that.

      Body rotation or hiding the serve? Body rotation is a huge part of getting spin on anything. One of the reasons the tomahawk and punch serves are so heavy is that they usually involve significant body rotation.

      Just watched ML beat Xx! Does this mean FZD ML final? Super excited. ML made some great leaps in loosening up his footwork. He seems more mobile. If he takes this final, man, I'll be well looking forward to seeing him in Tokyo. I have faith in the dragon.

      That's why people don't want to serve to the side or in front unless forced.

      Not quite. You can reorient your body you make contact in a way that makes the toss in front of your body or besides your body but has you rotating into the ball. It is just harder to do for a pendulum serve unless you are doing something like Samsonov and people don't want to do it.

      Most serve technique was designed in a hidden ball era. Letting it go hasn't been fully embraced.

      Bobrow has definitely been working on his Mandarin. He could pick up what Chiang Peng-Lung said during the TO.

      Makes sense. Exhaust all possibilities. Explore all your options. You never know.

      I like a coach like that. He is just trying to relieve his players of useless pressure. That said he must not have heard that doubting your powers puts your powers in doubt.

      CM always seems to shut down WMY more easily than she does the other Chinese women. WMY doesn't even do well at mid-distance rallies against CM. Asian Games 2018 vendetta?

      Also, CM's shots are as spinny as the male players. Creepy.
