    Between the baseline and netcord.
    I chose FH speed. Why? Because I hit it more often than my serve. In match play I only serve a fraction of the amount of forehands I hit. I would rather increase speed to something that I hit more often.

    Serve speed, I figure my first and second serve are already above my level and if I could get an extra 20mph on my kick serve I would have a lot of easy serve and volley points.

    I can hit a fairly hard serve for a rec level player. I can bring a little over 100mph fairly easily and have gotten a rare 115mph on radar. If I could regularly hit 120mph on a first serve, I'd really be intimidating people and getting even more free points. My forehand is fairly powerful as it is, I'd just like it to have more topspin.
