Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

The serve is demonstrated by Dennis Ralston, and then the exact positions of each part of the body at every stage in the swing is shown. The precise movements are then repeated entirely in slow motion with frequent use of “freeze frames” for clear visualisation.
