2 tips for begginers
« on: July 16, 2008, 10:04:42 PM »
when you hit the ball, always hit it through with a good follow through, make sure it is smooth and flows well

when you recieve a ball, always take small steps and adjust urself

when u serve lean forward

once i started doing these, i played a lot better

I read an article that offered good advice: imaging you get paid 1 dollar for every step.  You'll be moving those lazy feet in no time.    :rofl_2:

Oh, that's my wife.   

No, seriously, she is Allison Stokke, an infamously attractive college pole vaulter from California.  She apparently does not like all the attention she receives for being so attractive.  Morally I should not be using her image since she does not like the attention, but, what the heck.

If she doesn't want all the attention, then she shouldn't look that good, and wear such sexy clothes, and stand like that!

"when u serve lean forward"
-bad idea. unless you meant lean forward as you're about to make contact with the ball; or at least, just after contact on the follow through. anyway, might be too hard to describe to a beginner
-a great example is mcenroe; note how far inside the court he is when he makes contact.

I actually found a great article for beginners that gets into how to improve your serve in 3 steps...not sure if this will help, but here's the link to the article:

The article is at newbielink:http://www.howtoservetennis.ruqqa.com [nonactive]

Enjoy and let me know if this helped...if I find anything else I'll post it here. :)

I was just about to ask about tennis, but after reading the forum posts I suddenly found myself distracted by one of the pictures. I'm sure I don't need to tell you which one#! Also found what I needed to know from on of the posts so no need to ask :p
I love online betting, especially when I win!

I am used to perform a small jump when hitting the ball during my serve... I was told that you lose power when you do so. And it is advised at least in the beginning that you should learn to serve without that small jump. When you develop your technique and find some strength in your serve then you can give it a try with the jump.

Any jumping being done should be a result of leg drive, not the reason for leg drive.

I think she was in high school when that picture was taken, so we should all REALLY feel like dirty old men now.
