The Serve: extending/jumping

TennisGate Learning from the Best

From the bent-knee position, the legs are extended explosively pushing the player off the ground. At contact the player is in the air.

We have measured the jump from the ground to the left heel (left handers vise versa)

 
 
Andy Murray jumps 31 cm high - measured from the ground to the left heel.
