    ( respectfully ) You older student looks like he has an old untreated or
    chronic shoulder rotator or associated muscle impingement injury making
    his movement stiff and short thus preventing full and free rotation , is
    that accurate ?

    Great video again. This rotation does add power to the serve, just like the
    rotation on a forehand load-up is crucial to a powerful forehand.

    Can you talk about front foot ankle safety in serve? My ankle hurts when I
    serve for a set & I don’t particularly serve fast & hard.

    Pat Dougherty at IMG emphasizes in his videos that the left hip should bump
    forward going into the trophy position, as a kind of brace against the
    turned shoulders. This creates a kind of whip (or spring) effect as energy
    stored by the coiling of the shoulders is released against the relatively
    fixed front hip and leg. The student in the video doesn’t bump out the
    front hip, and the shoulders are unwound prematurely.
