I am not sure about this one - the hip rotation coming naturally due to a fuller swing I can live with.
When I started out, I would not even put my outside foot out towards the ball. I had to consciously learn it. Same thing with the knee bend on serve - it is not 100% instinctive yet.
I think eventually the best people can discover the correct things to do on their own, but the rest could do with a bit of guidance.
