Serve in tennis with David Lloyd

If you want to learn how to serve in tennis this is for you. The serve is the most important aspect in the game because the server has complete control. You have two attempts to serve the ball; if both attempts hit outside of the service box the server double faults and their opponent receives a point. When you are serving the ball your front foot should be at a 45 degree angle and your rear foot should be parallel to the baseline. Your weight should be evenly distributed over both feet. The grip on you racket should be continental also know as a chopper grip. Bring the ball up to your racket then toss the ball up into the air higher than you could reach with the racket. Keep your head up and make contact with the ball at the highest point possible. Let the racket follow through naturally. Step back behind the baseline and prepare for a return.
