View Full Version : point of contact on 1st and 2nd serves

08-28-2007, 01:54 PM
When i go for my first serve, i generally try to make contact with the ball up high where my arm is fully extended. My question is, when I go for my second serve, which is usually a slice or kicker, should I let the ball drop a little further to get more over the top of it, or should i still be making contact up high?

Probably do what works best for you.

No. You want to hit all your serves at full extension. Better consistency, pronation, delivery of racquet head speed, spin, etc.

I can't think of a good reason to hit the ball at less than full extension.
