  1. THX IAN. I had the problem that my "serving arm" came up to early and the "how to through a ball" part solve my problem.

  2. Wow – that was an excellent explanation of the serve. This is a very weak part to my game – doesn't help I never learned how to throw. Your eloquent explanation will certainly help me through the motion – I am goint to start practicing in my living room!

  3. Great info.
    I hit the ball pretty well with all the other strokes except the serve and overhead.
    Now I plan on starting from scratch and learning to hit a proper serve.
    Keep up the great videos.
    Most players don't use proper serving technique, but instead just "push" the serve in.

  4. When I played tennis for the first time I could never do a good serve like I either hit the racket too soon, too slow, or too high/low

  5. This is the best video I found at internet about how serve properly!! Great video!! Thanks for your time helping us to improve our tennis!!

  6. i've watched hundreds of tennis serve videos to gain tips for my students… this is by far my favorite

  7. I practiced my serves at my work(school) with a foam paddle equivalent to a junior racquet and a plastic ball with holes and then a regular tennis ball. I felt confident and consistent.

  8. See this helped me a bit, but I am a left handed server so this got me confused and I can't reach my full potential with my serve

  9. Ian you guys on YouTube talk about the swing I don't see the swing is too hard I think the toss is. like where in relation to your stand should the ball be at because there's conflicts on looping it into the court and others saying should be above head and some say more right

  10. I wish all tennis players, including the very best ones can see and appreciate this great concept/advice.
    You are the Man, Ian.

  11. Bro this helped me so much especially how the motion relates to throwing a ball thank you keep up the great work, Ian!

  12. So, with the continental grip, the face won't be perfectly perpendicular to the ball, right? So will you have to adjust your aim for a curve?

  13. What is the age to play for international 🌏 computation. I'm Indian I'm 26 old I want play international computation.. Please tell me sir

  15. pls reply with the link of the video in which u were instructing to stretch with rubber wire to improve the serve.

  16. Ian this is a great video thanks for sharing your knowledge, I've watching other of your videos about pronation, and I got a question. How should the wrist work while pronating on a serve? I feel I am bending my wrist at contact point. Cheers from Mexico.

  17. Hi, could you comment, please, the exact direction of the throughing motion. Is it forward or upward to the ball?

  18. Wow, there´s a lot of tennis serve videos out there, but this is second to none the best video on the basics of the serve i´ve seen! – Greetings from Denmark

  19. I'm in south korea, and my couch don't know how to teach THE FUNDEMENTAL MECHANISM OF SERVE. My shoulder is sick and tired of wrong motion. I'm going to practice a lot and tell you how it works. Thanks a lot. I'm your new subscriber~

  20. I played baseball in hs, so I can throw very well. I can throw a golf ball 100+ yards, but I can't serve the way I want to. Throwing isn't exactly the same as serving. Serving requires more shoulder & elbow flexibility that diminished with age. You have a great video talking about increasing flexibility & range of motion, and that's what I have been doing.

  21. Ian I was curious if you had experience teaching this technique to kids who are in middle school, or around that age. If so has it been successful?

  22. This is great stuff. I just bought a tennis racket and I have a feeling I'm going to be spending a lot of time on your channel.

  23. Great instruction with the breakdown into the basic elements of the serve! Love the reference of the palm direction (out-in-out) — so easy to remember! Thank you for this instruction.

  24. Thanks so much for this useful lesson…Watching this 9 min video made a huge difference in my serves

  25. One of the best lessons taught on service. I followed and you will not believe, I can serve with 100% confidence. I could achieve 10/10 clean serves this morning. I can share my video if there is a WhatsApp number at your end. Many thanks to you, Ian.

  26. I like how you performed this right-handed (your non-dominant hand) to more closely simulate a beginner learning the throwing and serving motion. Yep, I noticed.

  27. Ian, I'm helping with coaching high school kids. Some have never played. Would you recommend teaching them like this right off the bat, or should I let them serve with an eastern grip at first?

  28. I really needed this right now, I just started playing tennis for the first time ever about 2 weeks ago at school and my first match is on Monday, it’s Thursday. I subbed, thanks for the help!

  29. The only video I watched so far that really helped me understand a basic serve. Thanks for the great teaching moment !

  30. Could you send me information on how I could come out and get my shots diagnosed and then corrected. I'm off in the summers, and I would really want to commit my time to becoming a 4.0 tennis player instead of continuing to always be a 3.5. I'm 47 years old and motivated. Thanks. Tom

  31. Unbelievable… I’ve been playing tennis for just 2/3 years but my friends never play matches, only rallies and my situation was exactly what he described in the beginning of the video. Every time I tried I failed miserably, so never had the motivation to learn. In fact, I was sure I was doomed to never have a serve. But after watching this video one night, I came to the courts to practice for a few days in a row and followed step by step of what he says and goddamn I actually have a pretty consistent serve now 😱

  32. Very helpful, I found it awkward twisting on my forward leg, but on second look, you have your forward foot at angle, you didn't mention that. Also, how high to throw the ball? I find if I throw the ball to just above where I want to hit it, I have more time to make accurate contact because the ball is changing direction.

  33. Didnt really help me at first. However I realized it's all in the grip. MAKE SURE to keep your hand fanned along the grip

  34. Thank you for the video! I never practiced the serve and mostly just rallied. I’ve tried these techniques twice and it’s going to take a lot of practice. I still struggle with the timing. The second time I made the mistake of going through the full motion when I should have started with the racket in the elevated position like you demonstrated. Hopefully I will get the hang of it soon. It’s so frustrating! The inconsistent ball makes the timing even more difficult. But I will keep at it. Thanks!
