  3. 3. “ Cyber Tennis” “The Serve” <ul><li>Overview </li></ul><ul><li>There is a saying in tennis that a players is only as good as </li></ul><ul><li>their serve. A supreme confidence and rhythm arise from </li></ul><ul><li>playing good service games. Knowing you can hold serve, </li></ul><ul><li>allows you to focus on the return aspect. It is easy to </li></ul><ul><li>understand that the serve is considered the hardest to teach </li></ul><ul><li>and the most difficult for the pupil to learn. When you begin </li></ul><ul><li>the service motion you have to coordinate three simultaneous </li></ul><ul><li>movements- the ball toss, body movements, and racket </li></ul><ul><li>movements. With this being said any movement must originate from a solid base…. </li></ul>

  29. 29. “ Cyber Tennis” “The Serve ” Double click on picture to play “Follow-through”
  30. 30. “ Cyber Tennis” “The Serve ” Racket continues outward across body Weight transfer brings you into court “ Follow-Through ”
  31. 31. “ Cyber Tennis” “The Serve ” Racket continues outward across body Weight transfer brings you into court “ Good Follow-Through ”
  32. 32. “ Cyber Tennis” “The Serve ” “ Follow-Through ” Head is too high or restricted during follow-through Racket continues too far forward before crossing the body Minimal weight transfer brings body partially into court.
  33. 33. “ Cyber Tennis” “The Serve ” “ Follow-Through ” Head is in good position and unrestricted during follow-through Racket continues outward across body Weight transfer brings you into court “ Good Follow-Through ”
  34. 34. “ Cyber Tennis” The Serve “ Good Footwork An Overview” <ul><li>The most important element of the advanced serve is the use </li></ul><ul><li>of the lower body or footwork. The knee bend is more severe </li></ul><ul><li>at the beginning of the motion until the completion of the </li></ul><ul><li>coiling phase. This will result in an automatic upward </li></ul><ul><li>uncoiling into the ball. The relationship between footwork </li></ul><ul><li>and serving is paramount in unlocking power. Developing </li></ul><ul><li>this bend should be worked on over time. </li></ul>
  35. 35. “ Cyber Tennis” “The Serve ” “ Good Footwork ” “From ready Position, to the racket drop, up to the coiling”
  36. 36. “ Cyber Tennis” “The Serve ” “ Good Footwork ” “coiling until swing” This is where a lot of the energy of the serve is generated. Look at the movement of the legs.. Specifically flexion.
  37. 37. “ Cyber Tennis” “The Serve ” “ Good Footwork ” “swing to contact” No foot movement here. Change is due to rotation and uncoiling.
  38. 38. “ Cyber Tennis” “The Serve ” “ Good Footwork ” “contact and follow-through” As uncoiling takes place rear foot balances body by moving back and away from athlete. Landing is on opposite foot showing proper sequence of body rotation
  39. 39. “ Cyber Tennis” “The Serve ” “ Poor Footwork ” “coiling until swing” This is where a lot of the energy of the serve is generated or Lost . Look at the movement of the legs.. Specifically flexion. This athlete has minimal movement of the feet and little flexion of the legs
