Just wanted to post my vids and see if anyone had any advice/tips in improving. I never noticed until this slow-mo that my non-dominant arm doesn't tuck in when during my shoulder rotation. not sure if this would have any affect??

also realized that i seem to over-rotate. after serving, my back seems to face the net a little. i think that slows my recovery and takes away time in preparation of the next shot. am i right in thinking this?

You totally drop your left arm in the first place :)
That's why you can not possibly tuck it in

But the rest looks pretty good to me

Bring your tossing up WAAAY up, and you'll have a great serve! Also, can you post a full speed version?

I agree you have analysed your serve well! It could be your ball toss is too far to the left and therefore your body is naturally going to the left; therefore it's the ball toss which is the problem. If not it's the way your body momentum goes forwsrd when you serve therefore you need to work on your balance and try and imagine your shoulder pointing straight at the net e.g look at 1.21 on this vid, very helpful vid IMO.
