Pointing your body in one direction and then serving to another area on the court rarely “fakes out” the players in serve receive.

You will always be off-balance, and this will increase your chances of 

  • serving out
  • making a bad contact with the ball or
  • into the net

Be sure that your

  • lower body---hips and waist along with your
  • upper body---chest, shoulders and arms

are all facing your intended target once

  • you've started and once 
  • you've finished

your serving action.

Let that passer know that you are serving them.

Trust me, let that passer think about what kinds of trouble your serve is about to cause her.

Then serve the ball aggressively, straight ahead to your target.

Be the server who serves the ball to score a point, not the one who serves the ball just to start the game.
