Like most people, you probably prefer to begin your serve practice from the right (deuce) side. After all, this is where the game starts… right?
For many years I did this in my serve practice sessions and when working with my private tennis clients too.
But not anymore!
You will discover that it is important to develop a good serve from the ad court for the following strong reason:
Most of the pressure points are played serving from the ad court: 15-30, 30-15, 30-40, 40-30, 0-40, ad-in, ad-out…
You must have a reliable serve when you have to execute this shot at these scores.
Make your life easier and master the serve to the ad side. You will be getting a good head start and be in control of the point especially when pressure is on.
