I use hybrid then because the feet are too close for me to do that and I can understand why it is more powerful but less stable. I think Roddick used this stance too.

Hybrid pinpoint, because it's tons more explosive than platform. Also allows me to have more ball maneuvering possibilities, better kick serve etc.

Re: Which Serve Stance Do You Use?

I use platform ala Justine and Myskina. I used to do hybrid pinpoint but it's too inconsistent for me.

I know right. For some reason my serve when I switched over to hybrid pinpoint was really powerful, but overtime it just became too erratic for me. Went back to platform and never had the same problem again with my serve consistency even though I feel it's a touch less powerful.

Re: Which Serve Stance Do You Use?

My transition is complete!! My serve is better! It's more consistent, and more accurate! And now, it's just as powerful as my old serve. My flat serve has especially improved.

I recommend the platform stance for sure. It takes work and commitment but it's great.

Re: Which Serve Stance Do You Use?

Pinpoint, sometimes I try something close to platform but with miserable effect. I am probably doing something wrong or maybe it's just not for me.

Modeled my first serve on Queenus, so whatever one that is. Second on Serena.

Queenus ♪ LordRena ♪ Sveta K ♪ Alisa K
