I got the chance to practise with Doubles Pro & Irish Davis Cup player David O'Hare (Current ranking 134) and I recorded my service returns with a POV view to give you a idea on what it's like to return a pro's serve.
David was a TOP 10 doubles player in the NCAA with The University of Memphis and has since won numerous futures and challenger doubles titles and is slowly making his way onto the main ATP tour events.
In this video Dave tells us
- His serve speed
- Where returners normally stand
- Do pros slice return?
You will notice his accurate serve and depth of serve. His serve also carried alot of weight.
I hope to do more of these videos in the future with better editing and a steadier head!
