Of the 100s of videos to help you improve your serve on YouTube, I’ve found these to be the most succinct and useful:

What you’ll learn:


Where to toss the ball for maximum serve power and consistency.
How to toss the ball to the same spot, every time.


Serve from the “Trophy Position”

What you’ll learn:


How to get the elbow and racquet away from the body to reach the classic “trophy” position.
The drill that made a radical improvement to one junior player’s serve in just a few days.


Learn the “kick” serve.

What you’ll learn:


The grip that creates extra topspin.
How to “arch” the toss over your head.
The unique finishing point that adds extra “kick.”


Prevent injury.

What you’ll learn:


Why aiming your chest “to the sky” is critical to your shoulder’s health.


Serve with fluidity.

These are good tips/vid's - thank you.

TennisOne is having a promotion where you can take, free of charge through 12/31/2012, Doug King's "Double Helix Serve" online course. Send a note to t1staff@tennisone.com if interested (or go to site: www.tennisone.com)...

I'm not affiliated in anyway - but the breadth of the course is remarkable and offer, generous.
