The way to get spin with pronation is to make sure you pronate UP and OUT. Look at the picture of Pete Sampras at maximum pronation. His elbow is above his head and away from his body. He got more pronation and hit more spin on first and second serves than anybody. People who pronate but can't get spin most likely have their elbow around eye level and close to their body in this position. Look at yourself in the mirror in this position. Is your elbow up and out? If the picture doesn't show up in the post, the link is http://www.tennisserver.com/turbo/im...2/Sampras7.jpg.
