I can't stretch my legs that far because of the pain on the outside part of the hips. What exercises can I do to make that area more flexible?
I don't think hip flexibility is that important in tennis. Hip strength is probably more important.

Shoulder flexibility is a different story..I think it's a key to big servers like Sampras and Roddick.
