Tip 12: Slice serve

Try to use the slice serve on the deuce side of the court to move your opponent out wide. Make sure you use your chopper grip and get the racket angle coming around the outside of the ball to help get the slice and direction.


Wrong – Racket angle is too straight facing down the middle.

Correct – Racket angle will come around the outside of the ball.
