    I think neither server nor reciever can move they feet once both are ready to start play.

    My question is:

    Once the server has taken his position to serve and the reciever is ready, it there a time limit (i.e. 5 seconds) before the server must start their service motion?

    A link to a formal reference would be appreciated.

    thanks for the link.

    So then, one can kinda make their oponent wait in a ready stance for awhile, this doesn't seem right to me ...
