Tennis Serve


DavidStack

565 views

I recently played a very poor serving tennis match and sit here thinking about why my serve was and often is so inconsistent, realizing that it comes mostly from my toss. The racket should contact the ball when the hitting arm is fully extended, but I often toss the ball short and contact the ball while my arm is still bent. By hitting the ball at the highest possible point, I maximize power and accuracy - the ball is at its maximum potential energy so more kinetic energy results when it is converted, and a higher height above the net means that the ball can be hit at a greater range of angles and still land in the service box. With a higher toss I can improve the consistency and pop of my serve so that I'll be like this guy :glee: and not this guy :banghead).
