I know you want variety on the serve but right now i just want her to perfect her kicker.The top 12s can attack it because it gets up high in there strike zone but in a few years when it really matters its gonna be hard to handle.
Good drill. I have a nasty kick serve and the main reason for that is because my courts had a low fence on the sides so I always tried to kick it over on the add side. Great for doubles. Worked for me!
