American Twist Serve?

Anyone on the board hit one of these with success? I've been working on developing this as a second serve and change up serve with some limited success. I play mostly doubles but I find this serve tends to get a little high on me and the reverse kick is small. It is effective in helping me get to the net and seems to baffle lefties more than righties (I'm right - handed). Looking to see how I get more pace and more spin / side-kick on this serve. If anyone has any useful tips on developing / using this serve or could point me to a good online lesson it would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hey fe!

There are photo lessons all over, but try about.com (search "Tennis"), then look through the archives.

Good luck!

Yeah - I've done that and like I said I'm trying to specifically add spin and pace to the serve and I find most of the information pretty basic on the 'how to' part and not much more. I'll keep looking, but thought if anyone had found one that really helped it would be useful.
