I went out and this seems to work fairly well. I can't match the power of my true overhead serve, unfortunately, but it's better than feeding in a forehand. The sidespin/slice makes the ball bounce very low, but an opponent is sure to figure that out. I guess the key is placement.
Anyway, I've never had problems with my elbow, but hitting the ball off a toss front and to the side makes me feel it a bit more there. I hope I'm not trading one problem for another. C'est la vie.
