On Episode 145 of The Tennis Files Podcast, I spoke with world renowned sports science and fitness expert, Dr. Mark Kovacs, about the release and loading phases of the tennis serve.
Mark is a performance physiologist, researcher, professor, author, speaker and coach with an extensive background in training and researching elite athletes. He is the Senior Director of Sports Science for the Cleveland Cavaliers and the founder of The International Tennis Performance Association (ITPA) of which I am a proud member. He is also the founder of the Kovacs Institute which is based in Atlanta, GA. Mark has trained numerous top professional tennis players, including John Isner, Sloane Stephens, Sam Querrey, Donald Youngm and Melanie Oudin.
On the show, you’ll learn how to improve your serving motion, how to toss the ball in the right location consistently, the causes of poor racquet drop and how to fix it, exercises to improve your loading phase of the serve, and much more!
