In this clip we're going to show you when to use the kick serve and especially on the add side, it can be very very effective. It's a little bit easier of a serve for the kicker versus the T on the do side. Because you have this angle, you're bodies a little more naturally rotated to get it out wide. So Gustavo's going to show you how to get this wide kicker and you use this to get your opponent off the court. I use this quite a bit, even on my first serve just to get them off the court and get them pulled wide. Hopefully getting them to release that one handed back hand and get out of their hitting zone. So that wide serve with a kick serve. See how he jumps high. Good job. Now here, he's going to get this one even a little bit further out. Really getting it wide. That's it. This ball will go towards the corner and really get your opponent off the court. That's the one right there. That's the one. That ball was jumping. Extremely high, so then at the other side, you'll see your opponent do this. How many of you are comfortable hitting that higher back hand? Whether it's two hand or a one hand. It's not very comfortable. It's a very very effective serve. It's not weak by any means. Good to use it on a first serve and it can be a very offensive serve. A lot of people serve and volley on it as well. Let's see a little serve and volley action right here. How do you do that? Right there, go in, getting that body cross court. That's going to be right down, right cross court away from your opponent. So it's a good one, two. Hit one away and hit the other one across court and kind of play. A little strategy with your serves. Right there and you'll hit that ball across court. Boom, see where that ball went? That's the idea right there. Great game plan, you have to be smart with your serves.
