This is what once a week doubles does to your game.I could not keep the ball in play for more then 3 shots. Pathetic

Your serve is pretty good. In the description, are saying you are a 2.5? That looks no where near 2.5 serving LOL!

the closest USTA league would be around 60 miles from where I am, so I don't play :). Just hit with friends.

Those indoor courts make you look much better than 2.5, lol.
I guess it is the sound.

I like your service motion a lot. It's smooth and uncomplicated. You aren't expending a lot of energy to hit your serves with good pace.

That serve is easily 4.0-4.5

Do you have any advice to a young guy trying to improve his first serve percentage/form ? You're serve looks so simple and consistent while effective.

you are easily a 4.0. good serve and also nice ground strokes (you could get more power by using a harder core rotation though-you are swinging mostly with your arm).

footwork could be improved and maybe you could also lose a pound or two:D.

By the standards of these forums, that looks to be about a 2.5 serve.

And that's the thing to learn from the OP's serve. Really nice motion, uncomplicated, all the right parts. Even with a relaxed swing he's getting lots of pop. To me that says an efficient motion that could easily go higher in pace. I'd say that was true of his whole game. He hit a lot of really nice shots, good form, good results.

Learn and groove in that nice motion with a controlled swing. If you feel yourself starting to do weird stuff to get it in or get more power then stop. Toss, trophy, smack it. Once you have that grooved in you have the form to get more pace and spin.

BTW, I hate the ratings thing that everyone gets into here, but just in case anyone believes the title of the thread, the OP's something like 4.5-ish I'd say. Even if he was missing some shots this day, you can see the form is solid.

working on it. Especially on the pound or two part, it is more like 10-15 :)

Not that I admire your game, I also admire your humble behavior. Some thing I don't see a whole lot in this forum.

For a moment I thought I was watching Tsonga from the back.
Maybe his serve is just a little bit bigger, but I have to say yours is quite good for a 2.5.
