A "kick" serve has major topspin on the serve that causes it to "kick" up when it bounces. It kicks up very high in the air causing your opponent to be out of position when they hit the ball. (That's assuming they can reach the ball!) Your opponent usually will hit a weak shot back. Use a grip that is between an Eastern backhand and Continental. Throw the ball in the air so that it is slightly behind the left side of your head. Bend your knees and arch your back so that your back is almost facing the net. This gives you the

You can hit an underhand serve in tennis; however, the overhand serve is more effective because it is more powerful. That is why you don't see the underhand serve used much.

A kick serve becomes less effective when the returner can predict when it is coming. Because of the greater spin, a kick serve travels less slowly. If the returner can position himself to strike the ball before the kick takes effect, he can punish the return severely. Many servers use the kick serve as their second serve; however, they must still occasionally throw in a slice second serve to prevent returners from getting grooved on their returns.

A serve in tennis is when you have the ball to start a game. For instance, the score is 3-4 games, you with 3 games won, and it is your turn to serve. A serve is when you hit the ball on the opposite side of the court in the square. Example: Standing on the right side to serve, you hit it in the square on the left side.

this is not the same as the heavy topspin serve that also goes by the nick name of "Kick" Serve. This question is about the "American" Twist serve.

There ISN'T anything called a "backhand serve" in tennis.

No, an ace is when you serve the ball so well that it can not be returned.

User Avatar

If by what you mean is are you allowed to hit the return before it bounces - NO.

You can hit the net on a serve or hit and have it go over and it is still valid. You can kick the ball if it hits your feet.

Not all tennis player do this but when you see this happen the tennis player is seeing which ones they want. Most tennis players take two balls before a serve take one to serve and keep the other one in his/her pocket in case he/she misses his first serve, then he has a extra ball to hit.
