Alcaraz the Serve

More and more my observations are less “biomechanical” – just about basic positions that you can come to appreciate, and in some instances approximate on your serve

Frame 1 – a very deep and centered knee bend with the hitting shoulder low

Frame 2 – the classes “racquet drop” with his chest and eyes up to the ball

Frame 3 – accelerating up and into the ball with the racquet still “on edge”

Frame 4 – contact – and the racquet is off line from his arm (important)

Frame 5 – finishing

Frame 6 – landing and likely ready to load up yet another punishing forehand
