I'm trying do develop a reliable serve. Let's say I'm going for a kick serve (or topspin, seen in some other threads there's a difference but would need to go back to it). I've been checking out some instruction about it, so far this is what I've gotten to: http://youtu.be/7ljYKm4VGNA (ad court, near view) http://youtu.be/AdPHK6pPkU8 (deuce, far view) [480p max] ==== Current goal: To develop a smooth swing, nice "effortless" serve. I "tried" too hard in the past. I want high percentage in. So far I focus on the swing and making good contact. Later on, I'd like to be able to aim better: 1st serve going deep into the box and closer to the lines; 2nd serve more towards the middle but with enough control to choose if I want a forehand or backhand return. ==== So... What do you think I should I keep / change / throw out? What should I focus on next? It would be great to have some opinions. ==== Background: I've played racquet sports before, but only started tennis about a year and a half ago and love it. However I've been haunted by injuries for months , so it's been a lot less court time than that. Actually got injured by playing too much.
