    recently, since i've been dedicating alot of time to practicing serves (~1000 serves per week), i have to play games with myself, to keep myself interested... eg.
    * play out a set, but to score a point, i have to get both 1st and 2nd serve in, to the correct third of the box, if i miss the first, i get a redo, if i miss the 2nd, i lose the point no matter what.... choose different targets combos each time: wide/wide, wide/T, T/T, T/body, etc...
    * deuce: serve 1st and 2nd, run to other side of net, serve ad: 1st and 2nd, etc... i find that forcing myself to go to the other side, forces me to "find my rhythm" again... ie. serving 10 first serves in a row is not the same as serving for game/set/match point after a previously long point.


    in general i love jorge's drills on yt.
    Thanks.. I hope you found the drill useful.

    flat: 10... surprised i was able to even get as low as 10
    topslice: 6... surprised i was able to get this 6 in a row... granted it was the "3rd" try
    kick: 8... surprised how hard it was to consistently go deuce:wide, ad:T (because I'm usually going to a righty bh)
    Glad you could give it a try... its a great drill for our players

    I've been using this drill for years and it's always interesting to see how a player does the first time. I've seen many a high level player take up to 25 serves to get all six the first time, then by the say the third time they're down to somewhere between 6 and 10. I've also found the toughest area for players to hit is the middle of the box as they're so used to going wide and "T." Great drill for establishing serve confidence!
