    I’ve been a tennis dummy for ages, I couldn’t even serve the ball over the
    net for how many times I tried it. After following this instructions, I am
    able to serve not only over the net but to add some power too. I’m very
    stunned by this instructions. Thanks Will!!!

    nice,i liked your lessons,I noticed with the men with the best and most
    fluid servers now,(mardi fish, safin or federer)hardly rock on their heels
    at all during the toss,they keep thier center of gravity is fairly static
    through the toss and back swing, at the end of the toss and backswing they
    have their knees bent and are leaning back relaxed.the guys who do rock on
    their heels a bit before the toss tend to have balance problems. I find it
    easier to be consistend too.


    OMG that happens to me sometimes its so annoying :@

  • kittybookitty 5 years ago

    this is the hardest thing for me. everytime i try to do the racket drop,
    and i actually think about it, i end up completely messing up the rhythm of
    my serve in general. How can i practice this?

  • FYB2007 5 years ago

    no problem!

    hello,FYB2007 how do you get combination with slice and kick together.?

  • Phil Hevron 5 years ago

    @caloyjp The scratch back position is a misconception. In fact, it is an
    external then internal rotation of the shoulder NOT a flexion of the elbow
    as in the back scratch. Leg drive creates most of the racket pointing down.
    My tip – focus on what you can see and don’t worry too much about what is
    happening behind your back.

    Of course I have been practicing more and more every day I hit about
    250-300 serves and I’m lowering but still. If I just serve from scratch
    back without trophy.. the amount of kick I’m getting on the ball is plain
    sick… it’s simply amazing. However if I start serving from trophy pose, I
    guess I lose the scratch back momentum and the ball just goes sort of flat.
    Long story short, apart from keep practicing which I am… do you have
    other recommendation?

  • FYB2007 5 years ago

    The racket is pointed straight down at the court. One way to practice
    getting to this position is to go to a field and throw your racket straight
    up in the air. That will make it pretty likely you’re getting to the
    correct racket drop.

    Hello! Thanks for this helpful video. By the way, I notice lots of people
    keep on talking about Tennisolanox System (do a search on google), but I’m
    not sure if it is really good. Have you ever tried this tennis training
    known as Tennisolanox System? I’ve heard some incredible things about it.

  • adri vreeke 5 years ago

    this serve instructions are veryvery good any youngster can have great
    opportunity off it

  • dlightman1978 5 years ago

    Will another question, I mean I have been asking a lot in some of your
    other videos. I’m having a lot of trouble with the following: I’m at my
    trophy pose and it’s very hard for me (I don’t know why) to drop my racket
    from the trophy pose to the scratch my back pose. I video myself and I
    barely drop my racket to my head. continues…….

    comfortably serving

  • Deepskybin 5 years ago

    i think that you don´t have to think about it, it just happen when you jump
    i think, as you can see between 1:20 and 1:35
