Introduction

Big servers like Greg Rusedski can blast the ball at speeds in excess of 140mph.

And top women like Venus Williams send it down at anything up to 120mph.

To be successful in the modern game players have to have an effective serve.

They have to be able to hit the ball hard but also with amazing accuracy.

The more points you can take on your serve with service winners and aces, the harder you will be to beat.
