Practice Service Spin on a Rug!

It’s often difficult to judge how much spin you are putting on the ball when you practice serves. Without this feedback, it’s not easy to improve your serves. So try this find a large, carpeted room, and practice serving there! Simply pretend there’s a table, and see how the ball reacts when it hits the rug. Learn to maximize your spin there, and then go to the table and learn to control it.
