    It's hard to tell from the angles you took your video at.

    When you do your next video try to set up the camera behind you and from a higher vantage point, kind of like the angle TV matches are usually shown from.

    I've been trying to rig up something to attach my own camera to the fence so I can shoot from that angle. So far I've got my digital camera attached to the mounting plate from a tripod, which I'm going to try and clamp to the fence about 7 or 8 feet up.

    Behind-body camera and on-court footage needed.

    If that doesn't work you could try the Gorillapod: http://joby.com/gorillapod

    Judging from the serves, follow through more, with more momentum out front. You seem to stop the swing at the waist.

    Because the serve is all about the follow-thru right?
    Toss the ball infront more, put some effort into it, and learn how to pronate properly instead of flopping your wrist.

    The ball has left the racquet... Follow-thru has nothing to do with pace, it has to do with deceleration of the racquet safely.

    Seems to me that you're dropping your left shoulder too soon on the serve. Might just be the angle, though.

    Unless another, better-at-analyzing poster confirms what I said, just ignore it :)

    Groundstrokes mean nothing against the wall. If it is somewhat relevant, you have an inconsistent contact point.

    Serves- accelerate through it and use your full body. Don't slow up your racket so quickly. And don't just use your wrist to generate pace.
