Hello. I've watched many 'critique my serve' videos to date and learned a lot from people's comments. Now I'm asking for help on my own serve. Video is here (but password protected): http://vimeo.com/55898777 Password: serve Five serves each from the side view, 3/4 back, and from behind. Apologies for 'tallscreen' format. === Right now I'm mostly concerned with: 1. Consistency — while I feel I'm doing the same motion over and over, the balls often hits the net, or sails long. I'd say ~50% of the time. The other 50% I *generally* get it in the area I'm aiming for (corner/T/body serve). I used to have a more consistent serve and placement, but since I've been trying to go for more heat and tune my technique from watching videos online, I'm losing consistency. 2. Heat on the serve. Despite feeling like I'm swinging hard, I can see my motion and racquet head speed aren't very quick. Sometimes I'm really surprised that the ball takes so long to bounce on the other side of the net after I feel it was struck well. I'm not sure if this is from not hitting the sweet spot, slow racquet head speed, or little topspin to pull it down quicker. Possibly all of these. === I can see my toss is inconsistent, so maybe this is my main problem. What are the other glaring issues you guys see? I'm wanting to have a one or two lessons specifically on the serve in the new year, but I wanted to get your advice forst and try to work on it myself if I can before I do this. I currently have spare time to practise serves during the week (Xmas break not included) and I'm really keen to improve as quickly as possible. At the moment I play 4 to 6 sessions of doubles, and 2 or 3 singles sessions a month, both 3.0-3.5 level. I get out at least once a week to serve 200-300 balls. Thanks in advance for any advice!
