4 Power Sources in the Pinpoint Serve

Pat Dougherty

In part 2 of his series on developing the pinpoint serve, Pat outlines 4 power sources. He believes that the pinpoint is the only serve variation that allows players to develop all 4.

Pat's association with the IMG Academy extends back to 1985, when he created the first off-court Hi-Tech program. Hi-Tech was an all-encompassing, video intensive off-court experience where students were able to explore every fundamental aspect of tennis. Pat's work at the Academy contributed in the development of many elite players including Kei Nishikori, Andre Agassi, Jim Courier, Tommy Haas, Monica Seles, Maria Sharapova and Nicole Vaidisova.

Also known as the "Serve Doctor", Pat produced the "Serve Doctor presents M.P.H." (Click Here.) In 1990, Pat received a patent for his Athletic Performance Belt, a training device which tennis commentator Mary Carillo referred to as, "a major breakthrough for developing tennis athletes".
