[tennisbiz] Re: Looking for a Serving Toss Drill

From: Ross Eaton <REaton6222_at_aol.com>

All the replies so far have been great. I would add a few pieces of
information.

When tosses are all over the place it is usually because the ball is rolling
of the fingers with a spin. So have the player try to toss with no to little
spin on the ball (no more than one rotation). Another issue to watch for is
to make sure that the tossing elbow stays in front of the players stomach and
does not go to the side of the body. These two tasks will get the toss to be
more consistent. Next stand to the side of the player and put your racquet
up where the toss should be. Have them toss up to your racquet face bumping
it gently. After 10 successful tosses have them serve with your racquet
there as a guide -- as soon as they toss the ball remove your racquet and
they can hit the ball. This teaches them to visualize where they want the
ball to be and gets them looking up to that spot early in the serve motion.

Toss from your lap -- with no spin -- look to your toss target.

Always choose service and
play fair on and off the court.
