    Recipe for a great serve

    I guess it's "simple" if you are happy focusing only on the rocking while ignoring all the complex motions that contribute significantly to her serve. She has massive hitting arm lag (more than Serena) and uses excessive wrist cocking on the takeback (moving into trophy) to help generate power...

    Going full Roddick with my serve

    I think you might find Roddick's serve isn't that simple to execute and imo you would be better off going to the Agassi/Todd Martin trophy serve (where they start with the racquet in the power position and then toss). See 1:27 below:

    Forehand Tennis Serve

    Forehand Tennis Serve

    Zverev serve analysis

    Zverev serve analysis

    Forehand Tennis Serve

    Nope, and I think the intent of the video was quite clear :D. There's no way you can genuinely claim from the posted photos that she has a forehand grip, since none of the key checkpoints are visible ... are they? All the evidence I've seen (including photos posted in this thread by other...

    Zverev serve analysis

    I think Zverev can afford it. Goran Ivanisevic, are you out there?

    Is loose grip really a good thing?

    Sounds like a good reason to make some more home videos.

    Loose wrist, strong fingers.
