Focus on your ball toss if you are having trouble with your serve. The way you toss the ball has a huge impact on where your ball is going to go. Is your toss out in front of you? Is your toss behind you? Also look at when you are catching the ball with your racquet. Do you catch it at its peak, meaning your full arm extension? Or do you hesitate and wait till the ball toss is closer to the ground? A serve that goes into the net can mean that your ball toss is out too far in front of you or you are catching your toss too low or both. A serve that goes into the net can also result from dropping your head too soon. Over exaggerate by keeping your head up until the ball has crossed the net. You be may be catching your toss behind you or too high or both if your serves are going long. Try shortening your toss and make sure that it does go behind your ball. Your toss should fly easily off your fingertips.

There are many types of serves in tennis?

Tennis players learn several different serves as they are learning the game. There is the hard, flat serve that usually goes down the middle of the court.

Players often have a favorite but learn to use them all to gain an advantage over their opponent.

Is Wii Sports the same as Wii Sports Resort?

No, Wii Sports Resort has more games than the Wii Sports. No, but 3 sports on wii sports resort are either the same or somewhat the same. Bowling has not changed. Golf now has 4 more cups (Resort A,B,&C along with Special Cup too!) and Tennis is now Table Tennis. Table Tennis Scoring in Wii Sports Resort is Different than Tennis's in Wii Sports. Table Tennis scoring goes 1-2-3-4-5-6(win) while Tennis goes 15-30-40-win. Unless either game goes into deuce though. Bottom line Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort are not the same. Actually The Only Change they made in bowling was they added automatic throwing and manual throwing.
