Once I tried to learn jump up and hit the serve, I find it hard to hit the ball cause you are in the air. Any tips?
I dont move my feet. I stay in a relatively narrow platform stance. It is really a load and explode up movement. If you start thinking about the serve as less of a linear stroke, where your arm is hitting at the ball, and more about trying to get up and over on the ball that helped me. Like your trying to push the ball over the net using your whole body, like a jump shot in basketball. The racquet is just an extension of your hand.
