Default difficulty with serve

title says it all....

I'm a high school tennis player.. and my ground strokes are remarkable compared to my serve. My ground strokes are among the top players on the team, but my serve isn't.

I CAN serve "okay", but my form prevents me from getting better at it.

When I serve "okay," my form is awful and I don't turn my body enough, bend my knees enough, or drive forward enough.

I can't understand why serving with my body turned is so difficult but it is....

I have a similar problem with overheads.

Any suggestions would be great... tennis season starts soon.. and if i can get my serve and overheads good, i'll be incredibly confident in what i can do.
