tips on serve, makesure you throw the ball up high enough! I need to throw it up really high cus I am 6,1. Don,t serve with a western just hold the racket making a fist and serve like that. serving with a forehand grips can be tricky.

idk how anyone could possibly help you, considering you didn't really provide us with any information.
also, define "style": inconsistent? bad footwork? inaccurate shots?
if you have good pace and direction with your serves, you're probably fine.

i'll provide basics---
serve: throw ball in front with a straight arm, and the ball mostly on your ring and middle fingers. racquet head should be behind your head, facing behind you. hit the ball at the highest point you can reach, and pronate your wrist. your non-dominant foot should be facing the right net post, and your dominant foot should be parallel with the net/baseline.
bring the racquet back, and meet the ball way forward on your hit, while getting underneath to create spin. i use a semi-western, so i can't say much about this.
i have a one handed bh, so i also can't help much on this.
always remember to split step as soon as the player makes contact with the ball and have fast feet. also remember to be in the ready position after every shot.
