So, what happens to your serve when you're tired physically?

i feel that i can still hit it but it is slightly weaker

Well, in most cases you start netting more.

After you lose your legs, you lose your spin and pace on your serve.

I start to arm it...and all down hill from there...

Well the result when I get tired on my serve is poor ball toss, and legs don't push off as well.. Swing is always consistent but the slightest change in the leg push can cause an inconsistent serve.

I think it's even simpler than that. Tired = no legs which = no spin, which = long serve.

So, is there anything I can do to reach the tired stage LATER?

As previously said; "doublefault-athon"

Even when my serve wears me out, I can keep serving. However, it affects the rest of my game and that sucks... It also tends to affect my return game, which really sucks.

Less spin and pace, which usually leads to less aces and more double faults.

I drop my left shoulder to early, toss strays, eyes not on the ball, and start cursing like there's no tommorrow..what the f*@#%!

if your tired then its weaker. just make suer you can get it in a place it. (you know to there weaker side.) dont try to kill the shat out of the ball if your tired. its prolly gonna net or go long in some cases.

My racquet head speed decreases, which is basically disasterous...due to this my contact point lowers, my spin decreases, and my pace falls off.

I basicly use 2 second serve since I'm small. When I'm tired, my twist/topspin begins to just sit up instead of actually jumping, making it easy for pounding.
