The second step of the tennis serve is the toss. The toss is arguably the most important part of the serve. You need to be able to put the tennis ball in a specific location above you head every single time you serve. In other words, you need a consistent toss to be an effective server. This video discusses the key elements of the toss -- how you hold the tennis ball, when and how you release the tennis ball, and what to do with your tossing arm after you've tossed the ball.
