The serve is one of the most important shots in tennis. If you have a dependable serve that you can hit accurately to certain targets, you can start the point to your advantage. Take the time to practice your serve as it is the only shot in tennis that you have 100% control. 🎾 #UTATennisATL#gamesetunmatched... See MoreSee Less
