body serving

stuck at home recovering from new knee so watching the tc– yesterday they talked about how Stevens doesn’t use her body weight well on the serve—I tease all the time how there must be a rule on the wta that only 20 players can toss the ball in front of the baseline otherwise why wouldn’t you

to use your body weight you must toss the ball in front of you

the first element is to spot the toss by leaning into the court on the bounce– picturing the spot in front and to the right or left you want the toss to go to– lean back ideally with your Sampras footwork then lean back in bringing your hand over the spot

huddle

in between points many teams huddle– going over how they plan to play the next point– it also keeps the teamwork up– constantly supporting each other
