The chase is the only thing there is, when everything is the same. :)

THe Trick is to find the best trick for your serve......Also the trick may change and or grow based on your perfection is something you chase not something you have.-

Spoerl mentioned Colin Dibley but I have never seen a clip of his serve. Yeah, that sounds like extreme wrist flexion to me!

well there is different time-ing and styles like bruce lee was able to throw all his body weight into a punch in only 1 inch of space.....which is also referenced in KILL BILL 2 when Kiddo was Buried alive......Some players can use the bow and Arrow Style....others have different hand skills like Collin Dibily fore fastest serve in the world....also one of my many coaches or sessions that ive have had....I remember Collin snapping his wrist like gumby would his back.

the there is agassi witha double leg jump and Petes rock-a-by baby

Yeah, I like the baseball pitcher and javelin thrower analogies, Coach V! I always thought Ivanisevic and Roscoe Tanner looked most like a baseball pitcher. Ivanisevic had all the weight back and went forward even on the toss. Tanner leaned forwards, went back very briefly, and threw everything forwards. 

You're totally right on on this!

Yeah, now we're bringing the heat!

ok looks great!

Try to have all your weight back at the the momentum from aka Shifting ( stepping forward or jumping into the ball, Landing onto the left foot, Throwing the football ) so the more you lean back the more you can throw forward into the ball....there are two ways to think about is like a base ball Pitcher the wined up the Weight all the Weight is on the back leg then there is a take back the starts the kinetic energy moving in a chain reaction of whips.......then its the left leg kicking back and being thrown forward as the right shoulder & elbow is whipping around and over the head......butt as the left leg gets thrown forward all the weight is moving forward thus putting Weight behind the ball thus making the ball heavy. 

throwing a javelin thrower would be another example & a basket ball player jumping forward using his knees.

PS....again make the swing longer if you can by finishing under your armpit.... closer to ready position remember as soon as you land you gotta sprint in any direction!

I seriously believe it's due to knowing the alignment more precisely.
