When I was a teenager my coach never tell me to do those so I never learned those but my other forms are good for serve. So is it very imporant for twist serve? without it my kick serve is still very high
also the follow through and ending posture is similar to kick serve right? any difference?
It is not necessary, but I recently worked on incorporating more jump into my serve, and it improved my level of kick tremendously, it also improved my consistency, placement, and pace. It made a big difference to me.
