Hi, my name is Angelina Zdorovytska. Right now we're in the beautiful city of Los Angeles in Beverly Hills. I started playing tennis when I was 7 years old. I was ranked number 1 tennis player in the Ukraine. 350 in the world ranking. I run my own business; it's besttennisever.com. I train very good players. Also, I train beginners, intermediate players. Tennis is my life and my passion. I would like to tell you how to serve. It's very important for you when you're starting to toss the ball correctly, because toss is the most important part. When you're serving you need to stay sideways. Take your tennis racket with the -- with the grip, it's very close to the back inside grip, you're bending your knees, you're going to see sideways, tossing the ball high enough and tossing the ball in front of yourself. So you're going to toss the ball, bend your knees and then extending your arm and covering the ball with the tennis racket and snapping your wrist.
