Forearm Pronation on the Serve

Jim McLennan breaks down what he proposes is the key to the Pete Sampras serve – forearm pronation, or the “forearm roll” as he calls it.

If you watch Pete’s serve in slow motion, the presence of strong forearm pronation is easy to see. Could this be how he generated so much power with such compact motion?

  1. Exactly what I have been saying for years! This is excellent
    the loose down and around follow through as normal taught
    ruins a,lot of serves because the player doesn’t pronate forward
    through the ball! This video shows how you should serve.
    Excellent!
