    You're bent over hitting the serve.

    I won't critique your serve but I will critique your video.

    It's just not a good idea to show 1 serve that lasts 5 seconds and ask for critiques from people. How do you know this is representative of your serve? Are you sure you serve like this exactly every time? What good are people's advice for you if you show an off/bad serve?

    You need to record at last a few on the deuce court and a few more on the ad court.

    And get rid of that annoying sound. It's not that cool and it's a distraction from people focusing on your video and technique.

    Your elbow is starting way to low to throw an effective falcon punch. The majority of your racquet head speed will come from your elbow traveling forward in relation to your body. Keep working on it peekachu, or who ever you are!

    I'll take the slow down, bend knees, jump off the back foot, and up the elbow considerations. Kind of advice I needed, thanks.

    It was meant to be somewhat amusing, not to all of course.
    FALCONNN...

    Since you happen to throw a mean falcon punch, do you happen to be friends with andy samberg?

    the video is too short to say anything about your serve.

    1 serve, 5seconds long? Where's the rest of the video?

    great pace on your serve,

    i would not change anything except throwing the ball higher for even more power and more time to aim.

    and that would also give you more time to get in a good arch position with knees bend. More power added.
