any help on this subject?
Excellent suggest's. Forgot about using the "slider" (extreme slice) serve. I've not played midday tennis for many moons so I've not needed to resort to using the slider for this reason. As a lefty, I'll use it a novelty serve on the ad side every once in a while.2 ways to serve in the sun:
1. use the slider serve, since the toss is more off to the side and not directly up. i'm a leftie so my slider serve toss i use in extreme sunny conditions is out to the left; for a rightie, the toss would be out to the right. sometimes i throw that sidewinder slider serve in just as a change of pace, even if it's not blindingly sunny. other times i use it as a second serve instead of my kicker second.
2. develop a short toss serve based on pure timing, where you just time it and kick it in with top. truth is if you can get this in as a first serve and it doesn't sit up too much, people are not likely to jump on 1st serves like some do on seconds.
