Gonna try again tomorrow. I'll probably do better .
I actually for the first time in I don't even know how long went out to these secluded courts that were just redone (they're amazing but the nets are either too low, or the top plastic part is torn off so the actual white "string" is showing )

Anyways, I had 7 tennis balls, and practiced on every court, both sides, until I got the ball over the net, whether in or out. I probably hit about 50 serves, which is okay I guess. I also practiced my toss and serve stance. I'd toss it, move my racket into position, but not hit it. I did that around 10-15 times on both deuce and ad side, on both sides of the court. It was a successful day

Good luck with the rest of your serving days
(believe me, it isn't as bad as mine )

You have no agency in this match. You might start to wonder if you have free will. Perhaps solipsism is true after all - is it Jankovic's world and you're simply allowed to live exist in it? It's basically existential waterboarding.
