Hitting Up On The Serve
Here’s a great tennis serve lesson concept that will make a huge difference with if you are in the habit of swinging forward.
If you watch pro tennis players hit serves, they swing up at the ball, but there is a good chance you might be swinging forward too much causing you to “push” at the ball instead. One big problem is that you might be using a forehand grip on the serve which does not allow for you to apply an upward swing path.
So make sure to hold a continental grip in order to hit up on the ball.

Once you have the correct grip following this tennis serve lesson, the next thing to focus on is staying sideways when you make contact.
One way to practice staying sideways is to apply one of my tennis serve lessons where you get on your knees which forces you to hit up on the ball and get in the correct position when making contact on your serve.
Working on hitting up on your tennis serve will allow you to gain more consistency and confidence on your serve. You will develop a topspin serve which is the most advanced and dependable serve in tennis.
If you are having trouble hitting up on the ball, trying getting on your knees and popping that ball up in the air.
