The kick serve is a difficult shot to master, so why bother? The answer is simple: rhythm. Adding a high-bouncing spin serve to your repertoire allows you to keep your opponents guessing, preventing them from settling into a comfortable routine on the other side of the net. By avoiding a predictable pattern with your spin and placement, you make each serve more effective. If you’ve ever been on the receiving end of a good kick serve, you know they can be tough to return. So, what are you waiting for? Go out and start breaking your opponent’s return rhythm today.
