    Hi guys,

    I've returned playing tennis less than a month ago. I was never a good player, hence my immediate need for improving. I'm 17 now and I'm going to college next year, so I'm really looking forward to getting in a good shape in order to be approved at the college's tennis team.

    I'm getting started with improving the serve, still learning how to serve with a continental grip. This video may be in low quality, but these were the best serves that I could deliver in that day. Hope it's clear enough so you guys could comment it.

    Thank you very much!

    Hire a coach. All you're going to get is people posting the exact same pics and links about how your serve differs from the pros. What you really need is for someone to look at it in person and tell you how to make YOUR serve better, not make it more like a pro's. It also doesn't help that all we've got to go on is six serves on a shaky camera.

    And even if that's your own court, please put on a shirt.

    Not so bad.
    Not dynamic, for sure.
    Tentative and timid.
    Fine for 3.0 levels of tennis, passable at lower 3.5.
    Just watch vids of top players on Utube, and use more effort.

    Its a good start but now you need to incorporate your legs and some wrist snap
