Hey modern fans, here is Another Serve Secret (A S S): Baseline is only a line. When I fault, I usually hit long, not into the net. Perhaps it is due to my 28 inch frame with 100 sq in head, perhaps due to lack of enough spin, whatever. Today, I started serving from 3 feet behind the baseline, same place I normally start my groundies from. Serves were all going in! In the modern game, you are not limited by wood rackets which required moving forward into the court on the serve to generate space, and control was provided by the low RA of wood. Instead, you have huge heads and more than enough power, and actually are better off not moving into the court because of the deep returns. So why serve from the baseline? Give yourself more room and swing more freely. And of course you will not FF. Keep this A S S to yourself.
