    So far, it's been pretty hard to try and do it. Anyone got tips?

    work on solid technique. a lot of control on the serve (just like groundies) comes from spin you put on the ball. but you need correct technique b4 you can hit w/spin consistently.

    but if you're looking for a quick fix... try hitting w/more topspin.

    get a consistent swing. Then find out the relationship between your positioning and where the ball's going. Then just adjust before you serve, and hit the exact same swing. Easy enough, eh?

    How to correctly do serve placement? Are you asking about ball toss? Knee bend? Shoulder rotation? Wrist pronation? Because I think they all work together in helping you "place" your balls with precision/power/spin. It's a whole combination of things in which you have to do correctly.

    I also want to know secrets about perfect placement. And while we're at it, any tips on how to get a little more pop on the serve too, like to get it into 140's at least... Do you just swing faster or what??
