I'm having some very frustrating problems with my kick serve. More often than not, the ball lands halfway up the net. I have no trouble generating spin, but it doesn't seem to have enough juice as always falls short. When I try to use more power and bend my elbow like I would on a first serve, I end up miss hitting on the graphite due to the different grip. Should I c ock (c ock is censored? wow) my wrist back and uncock on contact so that the ball doesn't hit the graphite so much? What can I do to generate power on the ball but still maintaining the spin and having it land in the service box? I am trying to swing up at the ball like I read in a different thread, but this serve is becoming very frustrating and usually ruins my time playing. Another thing that frustrated me to the point of giving up was my 1-handed backhand. My 1-handed backhand was pathetic and wasn't getting any better so I adopted a two-hander. I'm just having trouble keeping the ball low sometimes and hitting with enough power. Should I try to transfer my weight into the ball? It also seems fairly hard to generate a lot of topspin with a two hander. What are some tips for that? Thanks.
