Given all the talk about serves, it seemed like a good time
to bring this up.

It seems to me that a single handed serve is inherently
a disadvantage when playing against excessive good returners on a
clay court, no matter how good the technique. It just seems to
be more likely to break down and more draining energy wise than
a double hander.

Thoughts?:p:p

PS: Sorry, I couldn't resist:devil::devil:... IOU guys a serious thread.

i know right. imagine all the extra power and control Roddick could get on his serve if he used 2 arms instead of 1. All pros should make the switch.

The new secret weapon is the double handed balltoss.

Guys, I read from this kid's website that a two handed serve is more stable than a one handed serve. It's the new thing, mark my words.

That's why Federer has employed a new coach...to teach him the long-lost and mysterious art of the underarm drop-shot serve, to counteract the unflinching power (that's FINISHING POWER) of the two-handed return. And he's playing mixed at the French with a Canadian schoolgirl with pigtails and glasses.

Clearly the double-handed serve allows better precision and control. It will dominate the game in the future. :smoke:

Yes, there is less stability and too much wasted motion.
