When you practice or during match-play, pick a number of times to bounce the ball before each serve. The importance of having a ritual can be seen when pros are playing as well as observing other professional sports. Such an example is basketball. When the best shooters are at the free throw line, look for the number of times they bounce the ball before taking their shot. This "ritual" parallels the serve. I hope that all of you have a day filled with joy and countless successes!
