Yup, I need to really set aside time for serve practice. This was just tacked on after an hour of groundstroke work, so I was a bit lax with it, including the ritual. I notice on video I rush the toss. I'll dedicate a good chunk of time to it next time out.
I think that was the day I was watching a top junior serve, and he was a bit like harrison, just walking up to the line and swinging like it was no big deal. I think I was trying to see if that would work....
Mostly top-slice due to all the Rafter talk. I do have a flat serve which is highly temperamental.
