My 5 Favorite Serving Videos
Of the 100s of videos to help you improve your serve on YouTube, I’ve found these to be the most succinct and useful:

Fix Your Ball Toss

What you’ll learn:
  • Where to toss the ball for maximum serve power and consistency.
  • How to toss the ball to the same spot, every time.

Serve from the “Trophy Position”

What you’ll learn:
  • How to get the elbow and racquet away from the body to reach the classic “trophy” position.
  • The drill that made a radical improvement to one junior player’s serve in just a few days.

Learn the “kick” serve.

What you’ll learn:
  • The grip that creates extra topspin.
  • How to “arch” the toss over your head.
  • The unique finishing point that adds extra “kick.”

Prevent injury.

What you’ll learn:
  • Why aiming your chest “to the sky” is critical to your shoulder’s health.

Serve with fluidity.

What you’ll learn:
  • How a loose and fluid motion makes effortless power.
  • Using the legs, hips, shoulder, and wrist (not the arm) to generate racquet speed.
