Do the thrower's ten to help prevent overuse injuries to your shoulder, elbow an wrist from all your serve practice:

You can use a theraband flexbar at your desk: Thera-Band FlexBar Video Demonstration http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zB3TVb8a5mk

The serve is powered by the whole body in a kinetic chain fashion, with the power rippling up from your leg push off, through a dynamic uncoiling/reversal of the bow shape of your core, and finally up into the arm.

Like any chain, it is only as strong as it's weakest link.

For a total body workout consider:

Many prefer to use these long summer evenings to play more tennis, and concentrate on starting a more rigorous strengthening program for the fall/winter.

But here is an approach for a more prolonged weight training program:
