Thanks, man! It is more accurate for sure. I am working on loosening the links more to get more racquet head speed. I figured it out this weekend. I will tape this week.

Here's the video I promised. Landing square on the front foot with the toss to the right. Thanks, Coach V! First serve percentage is definitely up.

So I put the toss out to 2 o'clock for the flat and now I am landing square on my front foot! I love it. Thanks, Coach V!

But my hunch was correct. I no longer have to change my stance and telegraph where I am going to the returner reading my feet. All I have to do is angle the toss around (12 to 1 o'clock for topspin or topspin slice, and 1 to 2 o'clock for flat, or slice).

I ran into a Russian player at Griffith's Park and was able to win 6-2 easily on a pickup set. My flat serves were much more accurate, but then I could switch the spin up with the toss, just like a baseball pitcher. I could go kick or slice and be relaxed! I don't think my disguise was affected much.

I thought about it driving up to Hollywood tonight. I've been able to get away mixing it up off the same twelve or one o'clock toss because I play doubles mostly. There's a net guy to cover that down the line shot.

But when I play singles, I've been burned a few times by the down the liner if I went with the flatty. When that happened, I would go down the T. So I think I'll just change the toss to 2 for the flat and slice, and go to 12 or 1 for the topspin slice if I'm going wide on the ad. Just wish there was one toss to use, for the sake of disguise.

I'll vid the 2 o'clock toss this next week if not this weekend. But the other video already shows it.

Zammo! That explains it then why I could serve harder two weeks ago flat out wide. Thanks, Coach V. Lower toss to the right, so I don't have to raise my right side much and go through it more.

But can't hit heavy topspin off that toss, only slice. That's the compromise, I guess.

This video is when I toss lower and more to the right. Different serve motion I was using two weeks ago. I fall less to the left, but still do it on the third a little. Better centered to come in on the volley. :)
