On Episode 175 of The Tennis Files Podcast, you’ll learn how to develop a consistent and reliable second serve.

I used to struggle with my second serve. I’d get nervous and double fault on important points. I remember not even knowing the proper technique for a topspin or kick serve, so I relied heavily on my slice serve to get the point started. Double faulting negatively affected my confidence and the rest of my game followed suit.

It wasn’t until I learned and implemented most of the information that I share in this podcast episode that I started to develop more confidence in my second serve. Improving your second serve is one of the best investments you can make in your game. As the old saying goes: “You’re only as good as your second serve.” If you want to start having more confidence in your service games, this is the episode for you.

On the show, you’ll learn the key fundamentals of the topspin serve, effective drills to help develop height and spin on your second serve, strategic and mental advice to avoid nerves and double faulting, and much more!
