With a confident 2nd serve you can really let the 1st serves go without worrying about a DF. The open players ALL have a beastly 2nd serve, so get to it.
I struggle with my 2nd serve, and people say just get it in. But you cant get to the next level hitting weak second serves. Even though i struggle with double faults, im going to work until i have a consistent 2nd serve thats also hard to return.
