“Elbow The Enemy”
Today I want to help you with your serve. Specifically, how you can get your elbow into the correct trophy position.
You might not know where your elbow is suppose to be in relation to your body, and there is a very good chance your elbow is in the wrong place in the trophy position,
Your elbow is either too high or too low and stays in line with the body instead of it being away from the body. The bottom line is that you probably have never been told or shown how to get the elbow in the right place in the trophy position.
A great concept to focus on to improve this all important position is to try to “Elbow The Enemy” on your serve.
You want to feel like you are pushing your elbow back, pretending to “elbow the enemy” behind you as you make your shoulder turn and get into the trophy position.
Give You More Effortless Power
This will help you bend the arm at the right time and get it into a more natural throwing or serving position which will improve your technique and give you more effortless power. You want your arm to swing more freely on your tennis serve and this drill will really help.
