I had a really good tennis lesson this evening - a welcome relief after a few weeks of struggles (it happens). My elbow is improving which I think had a lot to do with it. We worked on returning with a low passing shot, some volleys, and serves. In the serve, I need to remember to stay low a bit longer and wait on the toss, load the back shoulder more (sort of a pivot motion) and come forward through the serve (think serve-and-volley). We worked on placement - wide to forehand, wide to backhand, straight on, first and second serves. Fun! I play with my group Thursday night so it'll be fun to try some of this out there.
