Andy Roddick?

Start your service motion slowly. Your hand with the ball and your racquet hand should start out in front of your body together at the start of the serve motion. Both hands slowly lower at the same time. The racquet hand drops behind your body while the hand with the ball lowers in front of your body. You then want to extend your arm with the ball up as high as possible before you let the ball leave your hand, at the same time the racquet is coming into the ready position to strike at the ball. Extending the arm all the way up during the toss keeps your head up and also slows the whole setup to the serve down. Once you have this timing figured out the next thing to do is strike the ball with the racquet. This part is fast, you want to explode into the ball. A simple way to think about this motion is throwing a ball, it is the exact same motion except that you have a racquet in your hand. So think slow and relaxed at the beginning of the service motion (until after the ball has left your hand and is reaching it's maximum height) then think boom! and explode into the ball with the throwing type motion. It takes time and patience to become a good tennis player. If you can take lessons from a pro your game will improve quickly and you won't develop bad habits. If you can't afford lessons, tennis magazines have good articles that explain and break down tennis strokes in detail. Good luck.

Who holds the title best tennis player of all times?

Good morning ! Your serve depends on two factors: the height of the toss and the speed of your strike. What you need to determine is what toss height best suits your strike speed. Here's how you can improve your serve and hit the ball more at the right moment: try tossing the ball high - I mean really high ! then start adjusting your strike progressively until you find the toss height that best fits you.
I hope this will help...

You dont have to actually throw the ball into the air. Hold it not in the palm of your hand but towards your finger tips. Raise you arm to toss ball and gently remove from your grip. This way the ball kind of goes as high as your arm.

Australian open tennis: Singles/doubles..?too much?

If you hit the ball too early in the air, that probably means you're
hitting the ball too early, as you said, or your toss is too low. Try
tossing the ball higher, and your racquet should hit the ball when it is at its' peak height, not when it is on the way up (on the rise), or on the way down (after it has reached the peak, and is descending). You should hit the ball when it reaches its' maximum height on the toss, or the peak. If you hit it on the rise or when it descends, you won't get the maximum effect that you want on your serve. Also, work on your conditioning. Use wrist exercisers, and do upper body strength workouts to help beef up your serve. I have posted some links that might help you as well. Your toss and follow through should be a consistent and smooth motion, with no jerkiness or awkwardness. It should like
that there is very little or no effort involved. The serve, like all other parts of your game (groundstrokes, return of serve, volley,
overhead smash) require a certain amount of practice to excel or master them. Usually, more practice is required at the beginning,
since you're learning it for the first time. Over time though, you may need less practice, since you're familiar with it, and just need to practice to keep it sharp.
