If it hits the net and goes into the service box, you get one re-serve (as opposed to getting two re-serves if you do that on your first serve).

If it hits the net and does not land in the service box, then it is a double fault.

If you're looking to improve your serve, the key is just to practice, practice, practice. However, generally, a good strategy is to hit a really hard flat serve for your first serve and then hit a very consistent second serve. Secondly, hit it where your opponent is not. If your opponent is guarding the alley, hit it down the line, if he is guarding the middle hit an out wide serve. Lastly, go with what your instinct tells you to do because you'll probably get it in if it feels and looks right.
