    Just cut and pronate like the top guys.

    Terrific explanation of the slice , flat and kick serve. Good joy!

    Some top trainers say you also have to pronate on the slice serve for more power. Is not pronating a matter of style? I’ve struggled to pronate on my slice serve for a long time now with no success..

    Pronation is for the flat serve 4.33 🤔🤔🤔 how do you slice at 175km without pronation. Chop the 👂 of is teached already 40 years ago and yes you make slice and you can make a lot of it ,if you are throwing the ball at 2 o’clock you can make more but going around the ball ( is indeed supination )is taking all the speed out.
    I don’t know what a 50 or 60 level means , I’m from Belgium and we don’t use those terms

    Wow, another awesome video guys! The slice serve is my (sliced) bread & butter serve. However, I often find ruts where I hit too deep or into the net. Any tips on getting a consistent slice serve? Is the point of contact higher or lower than other serves? Does 1pm vs 2pm toss affect the height or reliability? Lastly, can you come to my court in NC to teach me? 😉 Thanks!

    Appreciate the simplified, very very practical advice!! Thanks

    You mention it as Roger's favorite serve but this isn't how Roger hits it. I know it's a more advanced serve but if you teach it correctly there is pronation and the spin is much more pronounced when done correctly. Chopping is the old way of teaching this serve. The ball doesn't really take off when you chop. It could sit up high for a right handers forehand to serve you a fuzzball sandwich.

    Technical term for a chopping motion is "Ulnar Deviation" =D haha.

    Great stuff here! I have a question. The slice serve is my go to serve when I'm on the ad side (I'm a lefty) but here lately, it's been inconsistent. It will either a big bite and slide off the court or other times, it will spin into the service box and do nothing. Could it be my toss or my racquet motion towards the ball or grip? I do struggle at times with losing my continental grip. I know there are a lot of variables that could cause the inconsistency.

    This perpetuates the common myth that you don't pronate on a slice serve or that you cut "around" the ball. If you watch a slice serve in superslow motion you will see that you pronate after you hit the ball. You just can't see it at regular speed because it occurs too fast so it creates the optical illusion that you are hitting "around" the ball. What creates the slice is that you hit the ball on the outside edge at 3 o'clock before pronating and so your follow through is more forward and less out to the side than on a kick serve. On the flat serve you hit in the middle. On the kick serve you hit up and out on the ball. But in all 3 serves you are still pronating. If you don't believe me, just search youtube for slice serve, super slow motion and see for yourself (here is one example: Silly to tell people not to pronate! No such thing as not pronating on a serve, not matter what kind.

    You don't want your toss to give away our serve…

  15. William Summers Posted on May 23, 2019 at 10:00 pm

    Does anyone else have a hard time slicing when your feet are pointing toward the center of the court?

    For me, as a lefty, I can slice well on the ad side but struggle with consistency on the deuce side. I think my difficulties stem from not knowing exactly where i want my toss for the slice serve down the T on the deuce side.

    Nice coaching. Thank you

    I love that you guys make these videos because they're somewhat helpful for laying out all the steps and analysis of what can go wrong etc. but it's kind of annoying that you dont even acknowledge that lefties exist. Like really we're all supposed to toss at 1' o clock?

  18. MoLetalis Posted on June 23, 2019 at 11:41 am

    My problem with this video is that they generalize their technique too much. They think that pronation is the common way to serve any serve, or the 12 o'clock toss is the common way to toss. I never pronate during my serve and I can hit flat, top spin, side spin (slice) serves. The difference lies totally in i) the grip you use and ii) where you toss the ball.

    Just tried this out in my last two matches. Seems to be clicking in quite nicely- haven't got the scoop part down quite yet but my number of double faults has dropped already. Thanks guys!

    How do you create scoping motion? Is it forced by arm or comes as a result of whole body position and impulse?
