what's the recommended frequency and number of serves?
of course your sholder is hurting you...you are just not used to serve so many serves in a raw. however your serve is probably the most important shot and practicing it often is what you have to do to get to a point in which you trust it and become really effective. I used to pratice my serve a lot maybe 3 times per week a few hundres balls......the fist sessions were brutal but then it gets better and your arm/ sholder get used to the work.
