View Full Version : Is a topspin serve hard on the elbow?

I took my first lesson last week and I got the pro to teach me a topspin (kick) serve. I was doing it fine but my elbow started to hurt after. I went out a practiced it a few days later and the smae thing happened. If its going to hurt my elbow, I am not even going to do it.

If you do any stroke correctly, you shouldn't have elbow pain.

I'm guessing your doing something wrong or you are doing something wrong with a stiff racquet.
