How to serve on tour?

Postby Queengis » 17 Jul 2011, 16:06

I use Service 1 on tour and I have a lot of problems with the consistency of my serve.

I have 53% power and 46% consistency with 46% precision as well.

It's really hard for me to serve consistently at the same percentage. I can go from 70% in one set to 30% in the next. Also the speed varies a lot on my serve with the first serve accelerations. Some are crisp and max power but others go in and are relatively weak even though I serve the same way.

What key sequence do you hit to serve CRISP first serve at max power nearly every point? How do I charge my serve and release to serve hard more consistently?

Please give any advice.

Hello,

on service, you only control your left/right aiming and the amount and kind of spin you put in the ball.
Everything else (speed, success, consistency) depends of your player skills. So in your case, you should get your power % near your consistency %, or even under if your priority is to have consistent results.

even though closer power and consistency % are good, having them anything less than 70-80% is wanting yourself to get beaten....even though you have throw in perfectly controlled serve, your CHANCES of making it in are only 46% coz your EFFICIENCY is just 46%....take your power and consistency both up to 80% at least...you should go good..but even then it wont' guarantee you an ace every time...you'll still have to control your serve with your fingers
