“Practice makes perfect,” or close to perfect. Having good serve skills is a great weapon to win your serve games, but unfortunately, these skills don’t come naturally.

Tennis players have a number of drills that will help them improve their skills, and players take different approaches to improve their serves:
- “Better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times.” Software and great videos analyze your serve motions, which can help greatly. Serving. Groundstrokes. Footwork. Volleys. Coordination. Forehand. Backhand. And of course, warmups!
- Websites that give step-by-step help similar to videos but in different ways.
- Receiving coaching from a good pro improves your serve more than practicing it by yourself for many hours. Getting the basics down helps.
- Having a tennis partner so you can both return serves is an effective way to practice: both players can practice serves and returns.
- The bottom line is that you’re committed to a tough but rewarding discipline, and it should show in your tennis game.

What helped me improving serves was taking some lessons with a good tennis pro focusing on only serves, and practiced myself as much as I could in between those lessons.

It's not the most fun, but focusing on the fundamentals of tennis really does help. I just ran the drills over over until they were second nature and focused on one serving technique at a time. I still get rusty when I've been off the court for some time.
