View Full Version : The little thing that helped my serve a whole lot....

I had a tournament last week, and there were no warm up courts available when I arrived.
So went to the wall, and warmed up a little bit of groundstrokes, both top spin and slice, volleys, and after a little bit, I started warming up my smash.

tossed the ball like if i were serving, directing the ball to the ground and towards the wall, so I can hit another smash.
Contacts where quite good, and my smash and shoulders were nicely warmed up. The thing was that it helped my serve a big deal.

I was hitting loosely.

You could try it.

I am a big advocate of practicing at the wall, but rarely do smashes, now I will always do them, specially before a serve practice.

That said, do make some warm up exercises before you even hit the wall.
