    Looks great. I love your full range of motion and your racquet drop. What kind of power are you generating and do you hit a lot of aces?

    Looks great. Maybe keep the left arm up a bit longer, but that's not very important at all. I would have preferred a real speed video though.

    From the side on view it looks very tidy - good job. Would like to see a behind view to confirm your leg drive is firing at the right time, which you cannot really see from that video angle.

    Is there anything you would like to be able to do with your serve that you feel you currently can't?

    Only thing I'd have you work on is your recovery position time after you hit your serve.
    You seem to need 2-4 steps to recover to a balanced split step, time you would need against a strong, fast returner who happens to hit deep.
    Just too many weak recovery steps, from a trailing leg position, out of balance.
    Nice serve though.

    I think it is very good!

    You might want to consider starting the throw between your legs instead of in front of you to give the ball a little of a forward momentum.

    I like your hip moving into the court. The racket drop looks good. Nice looking serve. Seems like you are reaching at the end of the motion, but I can't see where you contact the ball (maybe contact too far out in front, maybe just because of the way you follow through). This could put you off balance some and make it hard to recover. What is your percentage of serves that go in and how much spin do you put on them? Are there any particular problems you are having?
    As I said, it looks good. It looks like your toss would be consistent, not sure I'd want to mess with it unless there is a problem.
