    I know to bend knees, but my back naturally bends when I bend my knees, or so it seems. Should I bend my back? I was told no, but don't you need a slight bend? Any pros who bend backs? I think knees only.................

    Bending your back can throw you off balance. It can help you add some more power/spin to your serve, but you have to be pretty experienced to do that. I'd suggest not bending your back untill you are very comfortable with your normal motion and you feel like you could do it in your sleep.
