In this clip what we’re going to show you
is the kick serve or the top spin serve and how to use this effectively to be more consistent.
Also, to use it sometimes for a first serve. It’s just that spin serve that gives you more
margin of error. Also, makes the ball jump up high to your opponent. A lot of times the
back end side, your real effective serve. This is Gustavo Sanchez right here. He has
a really huge second serve. He’s not warmed up yet. He’s going to show you the basics,
the idea of it. What we’re going to do is we’re going to show you how he’s contacting
the ball. Along the lines with the slice, how we went to the edge to the edge of the
racket of the ball. You’re going to do the same thing, but you’re going to come up this
way. Basically going from 6 to 12. Brush up and still throwing your racket out. Throw
your racket up to the ball. Very important, again. Going to the edge. He’s going to show
you kind of in half motion of how you would even approach this. Gustavo is going to hit
a couple of serves here. See how he’s going up on the ball. He’s brushing up. He still
pronates a little bit or turns the racket in. Also look and see where he’s finishing.
The racket is coming around to the side and he’s throwing his racket in this direction.
Almost like he’s throwing it to the side of the court. That’s the idea on this kick serve.
We slice serve we went around this way. The kick serve you have to get it over your head
a little more and go up. Will you hit a slice and then a kick serve. Gustavo is going to
show you a slice. See where the toss is. The toss is a little more out to the right. Now
he’s going to show you the kick serve. Notice where the kick serve toss is. Very important
to be able to locate that toss and that direction for your kick serve.
