Need Tips For Serving

My forehand and backhand are pretty decent. But my serve needs improving. I use the correct technique for the kick serve (parallel feet, arched back ect.) but I find it hard to get pace on the ball and it costs me alot of points. I actually prefer it when my opponent is serving, as I'm much better at returning :lol: I'm left handed too, just in case that would help anyone give advice.

borg, bjorn borg, whose right handed, used to serve, prior to his first wimbledon title,
with parallel feet. his coach suggested that he point his left foot towards the oppenent. he won five consecutive wimbledon titles shortly thereafter. go figure.

If you aren't jumping, you need to be jumping. You can always try throwing the ball a little more to the right or out in front of you. This will help you get more pace on the ball. I really can't tell you anything specific without more information or by seeing you actually serve.
