The fifth step of the tennis serve is the trophy pose. The trophy pose is the competion of your service preparation. From this position, you are ready to swing forward and hit the tennis ball. Getting to the correct trophy pose requires that you complete the toss, backswing, and knee bend -- outlined in the three previous videos in the serve fundamentals series -- at the same time. Also, you want to time your preparation so that you are hitting the trophy pose at the same instant the toss (the tennis ball) reaches it's highest point.
