Introduction to the Kick Serve
The kick serve is a weapon every player wants in their arsenal because it’s a high-percentage serve and it’s a tough serve to return aggressively. It’s high-percentage because you’re putting a lot of spin on the tennis ball and that spin is going to pull it into the tennis court and it’s a tough serve to return because that spin is also going to make the tennis ball bounce strangely making it difficult for your opponent to make solid contact.
Now we’ve taught the kick serve by highlighting the differences between the kick and the flat serves, so if you’re unsure about the mechanics of the flat serve I suggest you go review those videos first before you try and learn the kick.
