Hi, this is Jeff Salzenstein, CEO of Tennis Evolution
and USTA High Performance coach and I’ve got a very powerful serve video to help you with your rhythm on your serve if you’ve been struggling on it. So, let’s get to that lesson right now. Now, before I show you exactly how I want you to improve your rhythm on your serve I’ve got to tell you one of the most common problems that I see out there in the tennis world when it comes to the serve and it’s a myth that we have to
break down and get rid of because so many players are struggling and that is this notion that players think that they need to take their arms up together that notion of down together, up together. So, fortunately, more and more coaches understand this, and are teaching it the right way but I still see a lot of players bringing their hands up together at the beginning of their motion and we simply don’t want to do that.
That’s going to disrupt the flow on your serve. So, what I want you to practice is
leading with your tossing hand first. So basically, if I shadow stroke the serve, what I want you to focus on is as you start the movement this tossing hand has to lead. It has to move ahead of the serving hand and arm
like this. They can’t go up together. So, let me show you what that’s going to look like. And I’ll give you that in slow motion as well. So, what happens is when you delay the serve hand and you lead with the toss hand first you are able to develop that momentum that you need when you make contact with the ball. You can accelerate at the right time. So, that’s a very powerful lesson that I want you to take to the court and take action on. And if you enjoyed this video, go ahead and click the Like button.
