The sixth step of the serve progressions is to add the follow through to the motion we’ve been working on so far. We’ll start by shadowing the follow through. To begin, you can start with the racket on your shoulder. From contact, you’ll continue to pronate and point the racket down at the court as you follow through.
From the side perspective, what you’ll see is that when I follow through my tennis racket, hitting arm, and body form an upside-down “U.”
Once you’ve locked down shadowing the follow through, you can add it to the hitting motion we’ve been working on. Starting from the “L” position, all the mechanics remain the same up to contact, but now you’ll follow through after you hit. Remember, everything needs to be done VERY deliberately. The tennis ball should bounce three times before it gets to the baseline.
