锘? The tennis serve is the most complicated stroke in the
game. But that doesn't mean that you'll never get it. It means that there are
many ways and traps of not doing the right thing.

The most common
problems with tennis serve are:

- forehand grip
- trying too hard -
using too many muscles
- hitting a lot into the net
- looking down to the
court before hitting the ball

Let's see how you can address these
problems from the technical and mental aspect.

1. Hitting a serve with a
forehand grip

The question is why you play with a forehand grip when you
probably know that it's the continental grip that works best for a good
versatile serve?

You started with that grip adidas

 , kept it and still enjoyed your game (or won
matches). Unless you become really really motivated – especially with matches
lost to good players – you probably won't change it.

It feels safe and
you don't make mistakes, even though you're always on defense when your opponent
returns the shot. You may be missing the big picture here. If you play for
points – competitively – it doesn't matter who makes less mistakes. It matters
only who wins.

Tennis serve tip #1

Start practicing with a
continental grip. Since your wrist and your arm are not used to this change you
need to start slowly. Hit your serves with 25% speed at first. Gently grip the
racquet and focus on your feel. It will improve. Gradually increase
speed.

Later serve your first serves with this grip and medium paced
speed and use your safe serve for the second serve. The next step is learning a
top spin serve and gradually implementing it in the game.

Then gather
all your courage and decide that from a certain day on you will never play your
old serve again. Now you're really on your way to good serving!

2. Trying
too hard

If you watch really good servers, you'll see that it looks quite
effortless to hit a powerful serve. If you try hard to hit a fast serve you
contract too many contradictory muscles which work against each other. You will
not get a fast and effortless serve by trying hard! You are going in the wrong
direction.

Tennis serve tip #2

Serve a couple of your serves as
normal. Notice the speed of the ball and how much you exert yourself. How much
effort it takes to hit a ball with this speed.

Now stop and imagine that
you want to hit with same speed but less effort. Just decide and hit a few. You
may be surprised that you can still do it.

Now go further with this and
decide that you want to hit faster with even less effort. Let your body figure
this out. Just imagine the end result – fast ball air max 1

 , easy effortless serving and see what
happens.

Do not judge your results after 3 serves. Serve 20 or 30 balls
and know the end result – fast serve with no effort. When you let go of your
conscious control your serves will start flying!

3. Hitting a lot into
the net

The reason for this lies in your imagination. When you imagine
your tennis serve in a straight line, you connect your point of contact and the
place where you want to hit your serve with a straight line. Unfortunately, if
you're not 6'5'' nike

 , the net is in between. Many serves end up
at the net.

Tennis serve tip #3

Hit above the net! Imagine your
serve going above the net and into the court. More thorough explanation and tips
on this common mistake are available only for my subscribers.

This is one
of the best tips for improving your serve and I offer this tennis serve tip only
to those who really want to improve their game – subscribers to the

4. Looking down into the court before
hitting

When you look down at your target you obviously lose sight of the
ball. This means that you probably can't hit it in the middle of the racquet and
that you are not focusing on the ball anymore. When your head moves during the
stroke it pulls your arm too. This results in many mishits and
mistakes.

The reason why you look down is that your mind goes into the
future. When that happens you disrupt your mind-body connection. This is
especially evident on the tennis serve since there is only a small window above
the net where you must hit in order to keep the ball in the service
box.

When you play from the baseline you have a much bigger target. You
can make these mind-body disconnects and still keep the ball in play.

The
tennis serve is very sensitive to your mental activity. Every thought, fear,
indecision or mind in the future (or past) affects your serve. And since the
window above the net is so small you often miss it – either below in the net or
above and over the service box.

Tennis serve tip #4

Stay with the
ball until it disappears. The only part of the tennis serve that you can control
is the point of impact. Focus on that and practice keeping your mind in the
present moment- hitting the ball. That way your head will stay there too and you
won't disrupt your serve.

Decide beforehand where you want to serve and
then focus only on the ball and the clean contact with it. When that happens
move on – with you mind and body.

And one more tip – work on these
serving tips until they work nike air max 90

 , don't just try these ideas for a couple of minutes.
Practice them for a couple of weeks and you'll see a noticable improvement of
your serve.
