    For serving, the main thing holding me back is my shoulder starts to get really fatigued and a bit sore.

    I dont know what its called but to like a hand stand against the wall, and do push ups that way. Like, litterally push yourself up and down.

    I would start with ordinary push-ups and pull-ups.

    Also, try this- Lay on your back and push yourself up so you are supporting yourself with your hands and feet in a kind of upside-down crab position. Now, walk yourself across the room in that position.

    If the above things are too easy, find a gym with gymnastics equipment and work out on the horozontal and parallel bars and the still rings (with instruction)- I'm surprised more tennis players don't do this.
