Underhand serves are disrespectful

by Jonas Eriksson

Are underhand serves disrespectful? Nikola Aracic from Intuitive Tennis discussed this and many other topics ont eh Tennisnerd podcast.

This is Nikola’s third time on the Tennisnerd podcast and he is a guest I happily invite over and over. His insights and straightforward talk makes our conversations interesting (to me personally at least) and I really appreciate spending a few hours to chat tennis with him.

In this podcast episode, we go in-depth on some topics, as you can see in the timestamps. There should be something there for Novak fans, Rafa fans, racquet nerds and tennis traditionalists. Let me know if you agree or disagree with something in the comments. Do you think underhand serves are disrespectful?
