Synchronizing the Legs
Dr. Brian Gordon
Pushing with the legs on the serve contributes to the creation of racket head speed, but as Brian shows, in an indirect way different from conventional wisdom.
The leg push naturally and automatically generates the backwards, external rotation of the arm, maximizing the effect of the complex motions in the upward swing Brian has previously identified.

This is most important concept in serve development—synchronizing the legs with the upper body.
