Constantly engaging into slow slice serves as the main serve type does not add knee bending, a good trophy position, and overall rhythm that a serve would get otherwise. We have observed kids not loading up but standing and delivering serves in U-12 and at times even in U-14 categories. Bending, forming a trophy position and proper release is necessary for various reasons(more on it later). Learning of the correct serve form and rhythm gets compromised in this approach – delivering first serve with a minimal form to keep it slow and out wide sliced all the time.
