With regular speed video you cannot catch the final arm & racket acceleration to the ball impact because it is much too fast (<20 milliseconds). See comments on optimizing video for the serve this thread.

Improve the video framing. If you want to understand the serve consider a high speed video camera from Santa.

One way to show serve your serve contacts from behind -- If you can find any frames with contact use the MS Windows "Snipping Tool" to capture part of a frame and make a jpeg. Upload the jpeg file to a free photo hosting site such as Snapfish or Tinypics. Right click on the picture and select "Copy Image Location". When composing a reply select the icon above that looks like mountains. Paste the image location into the box that appears.
