Could you suggest a drill for increasing the speed of my forearm and wrist to improve both my serve and rallying? I would like to be able to put much heavier spin on the ball, both topspin and backspin. My primary focus is forehand but a drill that applies to backhand would also be good.

Hi Susan,

I think the best way to improve this is by constant practice of these two things while focusing on the firearm and wrist action.  For the forehand, do repetitive forehand from one position but think about only hitter fast your forearm it's coming through.  Focus on keeping the arm relaxed while doing this.

For serving, get a bucket of balls and practice your serving again with focus purely on the wrist.
