Hi BT,

You need to adjust your grip firstly to allow your wrist more freedom by relaxing the grip of the last 3 fingers.  Then stand side on to the table and start with your upper arm up high.  Then use the lower part of your arm as a pendulum to come down and strike the ball with a brushing action.

This is covered in great detail in our Serving Secrets Revealed DVD.  This will provide you with a great amount of information for a whole range of serves.
