Serve progression (part one)


How to switch to a competitive serve In my previous, we saw the importance of pronation in the development of a competitive serve. Performing this step, however, is hardly ever easy, and requires time and practice to get right. A teaching method that can facilitate and accelerate the learning of pronation is what I will focus on today. I will give you steps to carry out, and you must master each one before moving on to the next. Remember to carry out these steps slowly and with fluidity. This is very important to prevent injury.

Preparatory exercise As a first exercise, try performing a slow movement similar to the one shown in the video. It simulates the impact phase and thrust of the shot without the intervention of pronation, so we will simply try to touch the ball with the racquet.
