Well, if that's all.. I'm gonna do that tomorrow 🙂 (haha AS IF) 😉
I've tried this serve and been practicing it, really cool once you get it. Did it during a match and it got me the point. My opponent even noted the serve later on.
@nel3000 So you just did one the whole match?
My lefty kick serve is coming along. Watching the best helps.
@dfceltics20 LOL I can guarantee you, there is NO pro tennis player who uses a CONTINENTAL grip when hitting a kick serve… you CANNOT kick with continental… honestly, it's even hard hitting a flat serve with continental, let alone a kick serve
Great video, excellent tips!
Always serve with a continental. Almost every coach will tell you that.
you are retarded.
David Ferrer is only like 5'9" he serves about 128… so your first statement is false, and it is very possible to serve a flat serve with a continental.
Take a look at Goran Ivanisevic. Do you really think he had a continental grip when serving? Think about it. And he obviously didn't always hit kick or slice serves 😉 Another example is Boris Becker. He had a forehand grip when serving! And he was still able to hit kick serves.
don't arch your back 2 much or your gonna hurt yourself
Stosur makes it look so easy to hit a kick serve. I've never learned how to hit one effectively. My school tennis coach tried to teach me but I never got it down
Sam makes it look all too easy .
Is that foot fault?
It's an awesome kick serve, just don't copy her head position at contact point. She doesn't look at the ball for moment of contact!
no toss is ever behind you that's a recipe for serious injury in front to the left and with extreme flexibility arching you just might be able to master it if you use a racquetball racquet it's much easier to teach much easier on the shoulder.
looks more of like a top spin serve by the contact point, could be wrong
I used to use her strategy because my kick serve and forehand are decent, but I got new strings, and I've kinda had to relearn and get a feel for them
If I arched that far over I would break in half , no chance for me.
Fabulous coaching video. Well illustrated point.
Looks like she's got a pretty accentuated backhand grip on her serve as well.
That's some insane kick. There's a slow mo video showing how the racket hits the ball.
Yeah, Sam's serve is pretty unique – how she holds her racquet with a backhand grip and how she lifts it pretty much straight up with an open face. Most players take the racquet backswing palm down and then swap the leading edge as it drops. With Sams open face style the leading edge doesn't change. Try this style – it feels pretty natural, and not as messy as most other serve styles. It also leads easily from a flat to a kick serve. Sam also throws the ball way to the left, over her head, and arches backwards. But it's her grip and her straight up backswing that is really unique.
Dont bend your back, she doesnt bend her back. Poor choice of words that can lead to injury
ok, now how can we do that?
