Yes, the step forward does help. I already mentioned one way that it helps in post #2 above. It is a timing step that syncs you up top the rhythm of the server. I also gets your moving forward, in to the court, when you perform you split step. This is much better than falling backward after/when you split. Will Hamilton of FYB advocate the preliminary forward step and indicates why it is important.

Thanks, I'll work on that myself, from now on.
