Hi Jack,

The key is to keep your serve short and low.  By short I mean getting it to bounce close to the net on the other side and if they were to leave it, the ball should bounce at least twice on the other side.

This is a really difficult ball for them to attack and will set up opportunities to make the first attack yourself. 

Try to purchase a copy of Serving Secrets Revealed DVD.  This will give you a lot of information and helpful tips on improving your serve.
