the serve... you are pushing the racket thru the ball, instead of whipping the racket head..

try a couple of analogies -

1) if you think throwing, you should be throwing the racket HEAD, not the entire racket.

2) if you think hammering, you can imagine hammering a nail right into a piece of 2x4 at the contact point..

hopefully these thoughts can change your body language of the serve.
The biggest problem I see with my serve is in my "trophy" position. My arm is far lower than in any pro's trophy stance.

I'll focus on "whipping" the head and see what happens the next time I hit
