So why do pros use the closed style? Is it purely the pronation effect to get more power and yet in relaxed fashion or is there more to it.

Pros use both styles, but the closed stance style disguises the Kick serve, but the kicker is such a specific serve that if you mess it up a little it becomes too weak. and they step into the court and make you pay for it. so the closed stance style is only to hide the kicker.

I am working on a video overlay & Split screen for this production.  &  I also have "style identity crisis" which is the reason my elbow is GONE :'{, the overlay and Split Screen will have a slow motion  veiw as well. Just need time. I rarely get to hang out hear now that IM working. Tit for tat.

I like this instruction.  I think I grew up learning the open stance and now use the closed stance.  I might have a style identity crisis, not knowing which I'm using.  Coach, it would be cool to put both of the motions side by side in slow motion (from the back).  I think that would be helpful for beginners.

Background music is very important. the trick id to find a tempo that works with the video tempo. thats it.

Roddick uses closed style. believe it or not. you might see a slight variant in the follow through for a slice compared to a kick.

Thanks for clarifying this to me, CoachV. A closed style kick is hard for me to stay closed and pronate behind my back. It does not match with my open style slice. So I have been sticking to my open style kickers this week, using that shoulder-arch spring motion that Roddick uses. Much more zip. I'll visit your site for more tips.

to TIM: more about the Difference of the serves. The Closed Style Kich Serve is very hard to do if you have been using the open stance most of your life like myself,  it can be almost impossible. The Trick is the classic tip for a kick serve where you finish behind your back, but if you have any form from an OPEN style serve you will end up with just a spin serve which has little effect or a dinker. Another Tip for the Video. Open it up in two screens and look for the differences. I have overlay for my on court video lessons, the motions are almost exactly alike up until the start of the swing.
