I've been advocating open style tennis serves fore a while now. Since my practices and my point of view were in direct contradiction to the 'official' recommendations for coaching/training tennis serves, one can imaging the overwhelming negative responses I got so far. Even so, I have been encouraged by players who know me well and players/coaches who have the curiosity and being open minded. This year maybe a special year for my open tennis endeavor, seeing two elite players who switched to use open stance to serve (plus seeing Venus also come back to semi-open stance for her first serves at Wimbledon this year). Nikola Mektic Viktor Troicki https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llcFOZMQ72Y Before I found out that both Mektic and Troicki had changed their serve stance to open stance form, I published a new article titled "Forehand Tennis Serve". My prediction is that once the stance is opened, the open grip serve and open wrist serve (at contact point, the' player's wrist is more at extension side than at neutral side, like the wrist position of modern forehand) will follow. Those three opennesses are neat alignments to the modern forehand forms and techniques. Here is the link to the Forehand Tennis Serve paper - https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/forehand-serve-gary-e-lou/ I've posted above links at another thread named "Open Tennis Serve". Since most of the contents I posted there were before the publication of "Forehand Tennis Serve" paper, I like to start a fresh discussion thread - Will more elite players follow Mektic and Troicki (Venus Williams too if she is committed to a more open stance serve form)? Will these events start a new tennis serve trend? Will the open stance serve lead to open grip serve and open wrist serve (WETS serve as I called it earlier) to unify tennis serve and forehand forms and techniques? Welcome your opinions and critiques. Hope I don't get banned again by posting above links.
