    Okay, so you know how in a topspin serve you toss a bit to your left... I found out that it forces me to have one shoulder over the other during the serve (well, not really, but it sure feels that way). So I was wondering, am I supposed to be hitting with this kind of motion for all my serves?

    Like this I mean

    In order to generate power you will need to rotate your shoulders, if that is what you are asking.

    During my serve, which is a bit extreme, I line up my feet so my back is almost parallel to and facing the net then on my swing I will rotate my body so that I end up perpendicular to the net with my right foot forward.

    Hope that made some sort of sense
