Back to Back Issues Page Newsletter---Tip Of The Day: Your Serving Elbow
March 23, 2013
Hi everyone,

I hope you have tried "The Traveling Serve" and established some rhythm in your tennis serve. You can still click below to read the article if you accidentally missed the article.

--> Finding Rhythm In Your Tennis Serve <--

In today's newsletter, I am going to share with you a quick tip on the tennis serve again.

One of the mistakes tennis players make is holding their elbows too close to their bodies as they serve. If you do that, it will inhibit the movement of your arm very much. Can you imagine a javelin thrower sticking the throwing elbow too closely to the body?

So to solve this problem is pretty simple. As you start to do your tennis serves, maintain the appropriate distance between the elbow and the body. As you pull back the serving arm, imagine that you are jabbing someone behind you with your elbow. This will prevent your elbow from sticking too close to your body.

The rest of the serving technique remains the same. I just need you to focus on "jabbing someone behind you" as you pull back the serving arm.

Once you have corrected this mistake, you should be able to swing the racket up more freely and less tense to contact the ball.

Go ahead and try this tip. Let me know if it helps in your tennis serve.

If you like this tip, please forward to any of your friends whom you think might benefit from this great piece of information.

Committed to your tennis,
