    A lot of the big serves serve pinpoint, Isner, Karlovic, Anderson, Ivanisevic … shall I continue?

    I'm a pinpoint server, but whenever my toss starts to wander, I temporarily revert to platform, to get it back under control. I think the challenge with pinpoint is to avoid sliding the rear foot into the forward position until just before the toss has reached grapefruit height and minimum upward velocity. If you look at Sampras's rear foot, it plays almost no role in powering his stroke, and he rarely broke 130 mph. However, you never saw him throw a second toss, and he was consistently able to paint the lines.

    Don't mind your intros gents, but they start to be too predictable, don't they? When I watch several vids in the row…Best regards for your helpful efforts 😊

    Nice job! I agree that pinpoint stance could be problematic because the more you have to do the greater chance for error. Keep it simple with the platform stance but as you said key is to drive with both feet. Thanks!

    Maybe different title for video would have been more appropriate. Max Power and target audience doesn’t match.

    As someone who transitioned from platform to pinpoint; I definitely think platform is still better for most rec players since there's less going on.

    In terms of power though I feel like moving into the court with the pinpoint and drawing more power from the upper body chains (whereas in my exp the plat draws more from the hips and legs) makes it more powerful than y'all let on.
