Taking only the top 4 into account, it's not a big issue against Federer and Nadal. Against Djokovic and Murray though, as soon as they read his patterns he stops getting free points on serve. Actually, even Ferrer can read his patterns like an open book, hence JMDP's struggles against him.

This is definitely something that can and should be worked, he has improved his serve a lot in the last year but it's still too predictable and a liability against the best returners.

Supporting Jamvo1 for the ACC. Because he's not just playing for himself but sacrificing himself for the greater good, because he represents a noble cause (PM for details).

Because Jamvo1 is not the hero we deserve, but he's the hero we need. And because his victory will leave all the butthurt haters in ruins.
