    Just some serves I went out and hit a few days ago.
    Any tips are appreciated, mostly first serves. I know my toss gets away from me sometimes (I don't throw it to the right enough) but other than that any tips are welcome.

    It's rushed. Fast toss, quick to trophy pose, etc. Slow everything down. Once the ball is at the peak of the toss, THEN you explode at the ball. You'll find consistency that way.

    Did you change from a normal service motion to an abbreviated one? Looks like the motion is just cut off unnaturally.

    It's too quick and your arm is too stiff. Relax a little.

    I've always had an abbreviated motion and okay I'll try to relax and slow it down more.
