5 Steps to a Supersonic Serve

Tennis is different from most other sports because of its unique scoring system. For instance, in tennis you can win fewer points than your opponent and still emerge as the winner of the game. A big part of this is the fact that if you never lose your serve, you can't lose!

Players like Sampras, Federer and the Williams sisters are all great players. Without diminishing their other skills, the foundation of their success is, without a doubt, the fact that they all have great serves. How many times have you seen Federer serve his way out of trouble in a big match? Sampras became virtually unbeatable on fast courts because of this shot. Serena scares her opponents simply by the fact that she has the biggest serve on the women's tour!

The rules aren't going to change anytime soon, so you should do everything you can to use them to your advantage. That means getting a great serve. The good news is, the more you practice, the better your serve! Plus, it's a shot you can develop on your own, without a partner.

Here are five components of a supersonic serve that you can start working on today.
