Exactly. That's something you either have or you don't.

That is about just 6 feet. And your racket strings are just about 62lbs. Lindsay is 6'2. You are very close to having the same outside factors so I guess you need to have Lindsay's workout regime from back in the day. I don't know if she did any gym work but that could help along with hitting flat. Lindsay served flat and hit flat.

A few factors can help improve your power. A heavier, stiffer frame will help generate more power, as will lower string tensions.

But, don't forget an important factor that many do - easy power comes from racket head speed.

Good luck.

That's surprisingly tight for such a big hitter like Lindsay. Of course, her technique was near flawless.

Good point i go look up and see what string tension she used back in the day when she played and also, what string where they, also Lindsay was the type of player who took the ball early so keep studying and look at alot of her video online and then practice on your swings hope this helps
