The serve

A near #1 collegiate player said the same thing when we asked him to help us with the serve.  “I just throw the ball up and hit it as hard as I can”.

“It’s always been like this for me,” Kyrgios told the media while rarely taking his eyes off the Novak Djokovic vs. Adrian Mannarino match on the big screen in the interview room. “My serve’s been like this ever since I was a little kid. It was my best shot. I always based my game around it.

“It was one shot where I didn’t really practice much at all. I would hit maybe 10 or 15 serves a day, you know, would just relax and hit it as hard. I used to just throw the ball up and hit it as hard as I could. I guess just one day it started winning me easy points. I was, like, this is better than running, and that’s it.”
