    Dominic Thiem Second Serve

    Last month we looked at Dominic Thiem's first serve in both courts from 3 angles (Click Here.)

    This month we do the same on his second. Even more kick!

    Check out the change in the ball position on his toss - more to left and further behind him, his incredible arm action and explosive leg drive.

    It's a wonderful serve. The only thing I find strange about it is he doesn't sway into his motion. He just stands dead straight then bends his knees to start proceedings. I always like to see good weight transfer because I feel it promotes good rhythm. Just a little rock backwards then forwards would take away that stiff look.

      You are only as good as your second serve. Dominic Thiem is #4 in the world for a reason.

        Interesting how he tosses his ball in front of him but when he strikes the ball, it is behind him and his eyes are looking away.

            A great serve. He seems like Rafter to me. Better at creating a heavy serve that pushes the receiver back and/or causes a mishit or framed return. Shows that hitting fast and getting lots of aces is not the key to winning in tennis.
