Hi William,

You have picked a great player to watch and copy.  Hugo Calderano has excellent technique.

The serve he uses a lot is the High Toss Pendulum serve.  The basic principle is to throw the ball high to get the ball to be moving faster when it hits your racket.  Then you execute the Pendulum serve as you normally would by brushing the side of the ball.  One of the difficult parts initially is throwing the ball up straight so that it comes down in a god position to make the serve from.

Take a look at what is available in the High Toss Serve video which is a Premium video but worth getting access to.
