Serving Up Another Tip

Australian Open logo

Even the Logo man for the Australian Open keeps his arm up!

Serving up another tip! Notice the pro’s service motion. The arm lifts up and his/her armpit is visible. This allows for a higher lift and the hand opens on the release. Think 3 T’s – toss, tuck, turn. The left arm tucks toward the chest/belly button and the hips and shoulders turn. Keep your head/face up and behind the racquet. Notice that the logo man for the Australian Open is even doing it correctly!
