Okay, tossing the ball to different spots allows you to hit different serves. So, if I want to hit a very powerful first serve, my toss is going to be more in front and it's going to be a little higher so I can reach up and give it a good crack and that will be a relatively flat hit. If I miss that serve, then I'm going to hit a second serve and you can see the position of my body. I'm going to toss the ball more over my head. So, when I do that, I'm going to get more spin on it by swinging straight up on it. So, to get a more powerful first serve, you toss the ball more in front and a little higher so you can hit it at full extension and really give the ball some pop and for your second serve you want to bring the toss more over your head. Now, if I want to; if I'm serving to the add side and I want to hit the ball out wide, I might toss the ball more to my right to get the serve to my opponent's backhand. If I want to go to my opponent's forehand, I might serve; toss the ball more to my left. If I'm serving on the deuce side, I might do different tosses because it's going to produce a different result.
