    The one thing that really jumps out as me is no use of your legs into the serve. You do get into the knee bend position, but you just casually push up into the ball instead of exploding from the ground up with your legs into the ball. Everything else looks nice a fluid.

    I agree 100%. I'm hoping once I incorporate a powerful leg drive that I'll be able to crank it at 105,110. Some physical issues have kept me from really utilizing my lower body the way I would like to

    Nice serve.
    Loose the 30 extra pounds, and it will be a real weapon.
