In Grand Slam Tennis for Wii I make subpar serves, I usually have a speed from nearly 50mph. Computer players and players online get serves with 70-80mph (or even faster). How can I do that too?

From what I've read, as you play through the game in Grand Slam mode, your character learns new skills and gains experience as you beat opponents (see the game's Wikipedia article). I imagine the more you win, the faster your serve will become and/or you'll beat a player that will "teach" your character how.

That's all? To make a serve I swing the Wiimote and not pus a button. And the game supports WiiMotion Plus. All that input doesn't matter in the end? – Mnementh Jan 27 '11 at 9:58
There may some mechanics for an optimal serve. I've read online that good wrist action helps. – splattered bits Jan 30 '11 at 3:00

Disclaimer: This works for me, it may or may not work for you.

Try flicking the wiimote backwards instead of forwards when you serve. I find this gives the quickest wrist action.
