intuitivetennis.com provides you with premium content that is not available on any other platform to teach you how to play tennis by relying on your intuition rather than mechanics, i.e., Intuitive Tennis. Learn from Nikola Aracic, the creator of Intuitive Tennis, one of the world's leading online tennis instruction platforms.
All high-level players serve intuitively. In other words, they do not think about mechanics when serving. It's time for you to learn how to serve by relying on your intuition, rather than mechanics.
Every serve has an intuitive zone! When we accelerate the serve correctly, we are not conscious of what occurs inside the intuitive zone. A good serve accelerates so fast that the intuitive zone is not visible with the naked eye. We are talking about milliseconds. High-level players are therefore not conscious of what the racquet is doing in that short of a timespan. If players were to consciously manufacture certain movements inside the intuitive zone this would only be possible by slowing the serve down drastically. And this is not something we want, quite the contrary, we want the accelerate the serve to the max. Technical elements that occur inside the intuitive zone are a result of correct fundamentals and acceleration. If you learn the fundamentals of the serve and are able to accelerate properly all the technical elements inside the intuitive zone will be present without you ever being conscious of them. The result is an intuitive serve where you simply select the desired target of your serve, decide what kind of serve you are going to hit and JUST STRIKE THE BALL! That's exactly how professional players serve.
