You can make life much easier on yourself in your tennis matches,if you get a higher percentage of first serves in.
This simple match play tip here,can do a few things for YOU.
It will help you get in the flow in your service game and it will take a lot of pressure off your second serve, at the start of the match.
“You don’t want to look at a second serve at the start of the match,because you will be nervous and their is a likely chance,that you will double fault.”
I can’t tell you guys how many matches,I have seen, were the junior,drop his service game,because he double faulted or tried to push one in there after missing the first serve,that his/her opponent,smashed in their face.
This is why you have to get your first serve in, at the start of all your matches.
I don’t mean,just roll it in.
You should develop a nice tight kick or spin serve,with a lot of bite.(Velocity)
Then look to take control of the point off the return or work the point,until you get a short ball.
I left this tip out of the book,so I wanted to share it with you guys here today.
This one tip for your service game,will take so much pressure off you, in your first 2 games on serve!!!
