I can never seem to do Mary's service action properly. I lean forward and slowly roll back but the serve ends up being about 10km/ph unlike Mary's 180km/ph

Re: Do you try to copy a player's serve?

Actually, It must take a lot of work to make a first serve go at 50 miles per hour.Even more, to make a second serve go at 35 miles per hour.
