If you can get her to accept this modified serve for a while, it should be much less frustrating. Who knows, she might stick with it permanently as some elite servers have. Or it could be a good stepping stone to an abbreviated takeback motion. Your first goal should be to fix the trophy and the timing of the racket head drop.

PS - You might try her with a 26" frame for her serves for a while -- even if she can handle the full size racket on her groundies.
She will try your suggested motion tomorrow. I understand what you are trying to say. Her and I watched the Agassi serve you linked.

She currently uses a 26inch head youtek junior racquet
