Tennis serve tips

In these lines I will try to summarize tennis serve tips that should never fail in your tennis serve:

Feet position

Feet position

The first aspect of making good tennis serve is the position of feet in the serve. If a player has never received tennis lessons, it is quite common to see that the location of the feet may be incorrect. The most common error related to the position of feet is to face the tips of both feet facing forward when it is correct for the back foot to be parallel to the bottom line and the front foot to the right post of the foot. Network if you are right-handed and to the left post of the net if you are left-handed.

Hilt

Hilt

The second important aspect of making good tennis serve is the hilt. Remember that the correct grip on the tennis serve is the continental grip or also known as a hammer grip, imagine that your racquet is a hammer and you are going to nail a nail.

It is very important that you learn to do the pronation to get out with the hammer handle. Then get good tennis serve. Otherwise all the balls will not enter the service box and what will happen is that they will go to the side of the track. In many cases, even go to the fence of the tennis court. The pronation is that rotation of the forearm so that when you hit the ball, the ropes are looking at the service box without having changed the hammer grip at any time.

Must have a good Racket

Serve the ball

When throwing the ball in the tennis serve, you must be your best ally and not your worst enemy, with this what I mean is that you must throw the ball at a comfortable point to hit it. Normally this point in a first power kick would be at a height that your dominant arm to hit the ball is completely stretched and a little in front of your head. You could use the reference foot forward and draw an imaginary line up to know where to hit her Remember that depending on the type of serve (Plane, Cut or Lifted). The ball is not thrown to the same place so for this example is for a power flat draw.

The flexion of legs when throwing the ball is another key aspect so that when the racket makes the loop behind the head and goes up to hit the ball. You raise your body with the racket at once and get greater strength thanks to the kinetic chain of the flexion and extension of legs.

I insist that an article by itself is nothing but a static photograph of what should be done and the best thing is a step-by-step tennis class as I do with my students on the tennis court.

We go over all the phases one by one with practical exercises separately so that they finally join all the pieces of the puzzle to debug the whole blow.
