The player has finished the serve.

Points to look for:

  • The ball can be seen going low over the net, indicating that the serve is likely to be successful.
  • In this photo sequence, the player has not finished recovering to his ready position, since he is about to repeat the serve. In a match the player would continue swinging his right leg to the right, and start to go into a slight crouch.
