Marius Copil – Clean Service 3.0

....his service, which I would currently consider as probably the cleanest Service 3.0 with a perfect helix form on the ATP Tour. Copil surely profits in his service from a tall body with long extremities but at 191 cm (6'3'') he can be considered as not that extremely tall player when comparing him to the likes of John Isner, Milos Raonic or Marin Cilic. It was clearly visible in his two-set winning Basel match against the significantly taller top 10 player Marin Cilic (CRO) who brings with his 198 cm (6'6'') even more impressive bodily parameters to the court, that an almost perfect technique leading to an optimal...

Serena Williams – Probably the best female service of all time

Marketa's service has on one side (often) a very good long-axis pronation as well as an excellent head stability and eye control of the impact zone, but on the other side, it suffers from a rather extremely high toss, which leads to a limited body energy dynamic of the stroke...

Naomi Osaka – Japanese tennis prodigy – service analysis

Naomi correctly fulfills all the essential Service 3.0 (of Tennis 3.0) requirements. Certain distinct improvements bringing higher margin and better efficiency would be still possible though. Some of the main aspects to work on are mainly around the rather arm-power forced pronation, which is quite normal when proper pronation was introduced to the player later in the career but should still become a bit more fluid (with better contraction-relaxation coordination) over the time to make an optimal....

The most misleading coaching advice towards stroke production – 1 – Service

One of the most misleading tennis instructions is the imperative suggestion to lead the racket after the impact across to the non-dominant leg (left with the right-handed player) in the follow through of the service motion....
