Ultimate Tennis Serve Lesson - How To Serve In Tennis. The tennis serve is the most complex shot in the sport, there are so many elements that we must master in order for us to develop a reliable and consistent serve. In this video, Top Tennis Training coach Simon Konov, will share with you, the ultimate tennis serve lesson, how to hit a flat, kick and slice serve in tennis.
In the first part of the video, you'll learn how to hit the perfect flat or first serve in tennis, in five steps:
Step One - Using the ideal grip which is the continental grip. This is the same grip you should use for your forehand volley and backhand volley, your tennis overhead smashes and your slice backhand. This grip allows you to use supination and pronation on your tennis serve. It also allows you to hit all the different types of serves and spin variations with the same grip, this includes the tennis slice serve, the tennis kick serve, the tennis flat serve and a mixture of all three.
Step Two - A consistent ball toss that goes no higher than six inches above your contact point. The higher you toss the ball, the faster it will be traveling downwards when you try to make contact making it harder to hit in the sweet spot. However, if you toss the ball just slightly higher or exactly to your ideal contact point, the ball will stop for a split second at the height of the toss so it's almost as if you are hitting a stationary object.
The other main reason to keep your ball toss just around the contact point height is that the higher you toss the ball, the more out of control it gets, it's much easier to consistently toss the ball is the same zone if you toss it lower.
Step Three - Reaching a good trophy position. A good trophy position is very similar to a good throwing position, the main difference is the tilt of the shoulders as are target is the contact point on the serve whereas with a throw it might be forwards.
The characteristics of a good tennis serve trophy pose include the non-hitting hand pointing upwards to the ball to help balance the body, the hitting arm in about a 90-degree angle and the tip of the racket pointing upwards towards the sky. If you can you will also have a good knee bend in this position,
Step Four - Using pronation during the contact zone.
By using the continental grip you allow the forearm, arm and shoulder to supinate prior to contact and start pronating during contact and completely pronate after contact. This is the ideal way to accelerate the tennis racket head during the contact zone.
Step Five - Using a good follow-through and finish to complete the service motion. For right-handers, a good indication would be the racket head finishing close to the left hip. This will allow the shoulder muscles to slow down in a natural relaxed way without stressing the shoulder or elbow joint.
In part two of the video, you'll learn how to hit perfect kick serves in tennis, in three steps:
1. Using the continental grip. This grip will allow the proper mechanics to occur prior to, during and after contact. If you don't use this grip these actions will not be possible and the kick serve will not work.
2. The ball toss - toss the ball more to your left and slightly behind your head on the kick serve. This will allow you to hit the ball from 8 o'clock to 2 o'clock on the ball (bottom left-hand side to the top right-hand side).
3. Shoulder over shoulder action and staying sideways throughout the serve which will help you actually hit the ball from the 8-2 o'clock motion.
In part three of the lesson, you'll learn how to hit perfect slice serves in tennis, in three steps:
The slice serve in tennis is one of the most effective ways to start a tennis point on serve for both right and left-handed players.
If executed correctly, a good slice serve will open the court up on the deuce side for a right-hander and the advantage side for a left-hander.
The tennis slice serve is also a great weapon to use when going down the "T" on the advantage side for right-handers and also for jamming players into the body on both sides of the tennis court.
The key to imparting good amounts of spin on the ball is the angle of the racket face at contact. For a typical flat serve you would want to hit the ball more or less flat on with the string bed to gain the most amount of power from pronation.
For a slice serve however we want to hit the ball on the top right-hand side of the ball (top left for left-handed tennis players).
If the ball was a clock face, at impact for the tennis slice serve we would want to hit around 1-2 o'clock. This will give us good levels of spin but also allow the ball to dip down into the service box. Some coaches will say to hit the ball at 3 o'clock but if you add any real power to that serve it would drift wide as there is no dip on the serve.

  • Great video Simon! Very thorough and informative. I worry too much about the racquet drop and I think that’s what hampers my serve. Do you have a video on the racquet drop or should I stop thinking about it. Thanks

    • The racket drop should happen naturally, I'd work on increasing your range of motion in the shoulder joint and your throwing motion, simply throwing a tennis ball will help you with the racket drop. All the best Simon

  • Awesome video.. thank you for such specific and technical instructions... Will definitely slowly incorporating these tips into my serves. My only suggestions are 1. have your video angled slightly higher so that I can see where you are contacting the balls... and 2. have a slow motion of the serve so that I can see and visualize these motions for my serves.

    • @Top Tennis Training - Pro Tennis Lessons Totally agree with this fellow. I am a fairly high level player, played a lot of competition, have had tons of coaches (some of whom were top 200 players) and there are CRUCIAL things in this video NONE of those mugs taught me! By far the most important point was not pausing in the trophy position and losing leg power. By the way, does that mean that the iconic Boris Becker serve does not have anywhere near the pause in the trophy position as it appears to? :-)

  • Some players argue that slice serve does not pronate. Please confirm there is pronation, even for slice...

    Gary HowardGary Howard11 kuukautta sitten
    • On the slice serve, some players (pros included) will not finish pronating fully, this is common. However, if you study the best servers, they pronate less prior to contact but after the impact they fully pronate Thanks for watching Any lessons you would like to see from us in 2020?

  • I can consistently serve decently paced balls, have been playing for 10+ years. However guys around my height who have been playing longer can generate much more pace than I ever can. I don't know the secret and feel like I've hit a plateau since I'm not getting anywhere with the practice I put in. To hit a bigger serve would I need to swing more freely and loosely? Everytime I think about hitting a big serve I tend to tense up more which I know is bad..

    JacksJacks11 kuukautta sitten
    • The biggest misconception is that the racquet head must be moving forward to get speed. You are really trying to compress ('crush'!) the ball, as your racquet head is moving up (away/opposite from the ground). The racquet head moves MUCH faster that the hand and shoulder; binding the racquet body to either slows the head speed, which inhibits the compacting of the ball (i.e. the ball rebounds from the compression of itself and the strings). Height is immaterial!

    • For sure, relaxation is key. It's all about using the major muscles to generate effortless power. In order for the muscles to fire properly, you need to be loose

  • The use of the shoulders for the different serves (back shoulder coming up and front shoulder dipping for the kick serve,shoulders rotating for the slice serve) will help me use these serves.

  • Good stuff, but a little unclear on one thing. For both kick and slice serves, you suggest making contact at around 2:00 on the tennis ball. How, then, will they act differently if you hit it in the same relative position for both serves?

    Keith BabcockKeith BabcockVuosi sitten
    • Note that TTT replies clarifying that it is the PATH of the swing that determines the spin type. The difference in actual contact (point) on the ball is minimal (and you can barely control that point, as it is!).

    • Kick serve is 8-2 o'clock so finishing up on that side, you're brushing upwards and across the ball, so the impact starts at the bottom left-hand side (7-8) and ends up on the top right-hand side (1-2). For the slice serve, you make contact around 1-2 o'clock so completely different impact zones. Hope that makes sense All the best Simon

  • So there you have it, guys, three steps to hitting the perfect kick serve. Step number 1: once again, the grip. Step number 2: the ball toss. And Step number 3: hitting the ball from 8 o’clock to 2 o’clock, while staying sideways-on with your shoulders and having that shoulder-over-shoulder motion, but also playing around with the feet position and the foot position, especially this back foot; playing around with how far you can bring it ‘round, especially if you use a platform stance, now if you use a pinpoint stance, you can still play around with foot position, so...

  • Your video makes sense. But as an amateur, I having a hard time implementing it. With just placing the ball, I am not able to get the right height (6 inches over contact). Maybe I carried the "gentle placing" of the ball notion a bit too far. So I amped up the lift just enough and got the right height. Then I was not able to accelerate from the fully stretched arch/trophy position to make contact at the right height. I am not quick enough and the ball ends up dropping too low at contact. My natural toss is very high in order to sync with the right arm. With higher toss, I am able to generate 145-150kph (60% first serve). Would you advice change the rhythm to start lifting my right arm earlier in order to meet the ball sooner at a lower height? Would that compromise the kinetic chain/increase errors? Thanks and I really enjoy your videos. Long time subscriber

    • @Top Tennis Training - Pro Tennis Lessons Hi Simon, in your video on the Toss, all your examples of the Pros serving are all tossing the ball more than a few feet before they hit the serve. Am I seeing it right? Or, is it ok to toss it up more than a feet?

  • I am a right hander and I have a disability in my left hand and shoulder. I am doing okay with the forehand and backhand shots because I can do both with my right hand. However, I have been struggling with the serve since I started playing tennis a year ago. I can't raise my left hand high enough during the toss and therefore I can't reach the high to high shoulder position plus I can't place the ball properly as you said. Sometimes it goes behind me and other times forward or to the left or the right. I have been trying to find a way, that would be suitable for my situation, to fix my serve but it's just not happening! Thank you though for the video, it's so informative and enjoyable!

    • I just played with a guy who suffers from shoulder problems. He uses a drop serve into a heavy topspin forehand. Unconventional, but surprisingly effective. The weird rhythm drives returners crazy.

    • Sorry to hear that Mahmoud, that sounds like a real issue for the serve. Maybe you can try to toss the ball slightly more in front of you (inside the court) but keep the toss quite low and have a fast action, that could help you out with the tossing arm issue. All the best Simon

  • thank you very much for this . but what about landing after serve? i usually land with my right leg, but not with a left. How to fix this? Thanks

    • I believe it more about how the energy moves in the right direction rather than which foot you actually land with. I teach both to my nationally ranked juniors. What do you guys think?

    • That means you're driving forward, or over-rotating and not driving upwards (unless your name is Boris Becker) Check out this lesson on leg drive - fistream.info/work/videot/a8Jlq9q_oqPQzWg

  • I have question - I can do trophy position but at that time my racket goes at my back and I can't do straight 90 degree

    • Make sure you're using the correct grip and don't let your wrist flop, point the racket tip up to the sky
