look at the good serves - easier said than done..
Look at slow motion video of the professionals on the tube. Put a camera on a tripod and then video your serve during the next practice. Compare it to the professional and see what you are doing wrong. The preceding is easy.
The hard part is then getting your body to adopt the changes you know you need to make.
But if you don't have the money to hire a good coach, I can't recommend using video highly enough. Seriously, the mental image we have of what we are doing is over-rated. The camera will show you the truth and then allow you to make real improvement.
