Who are some players with weird/stupid service motions?

For me, I think guys like Dolgopolov, Mayer, Baghdatis have really dumb looking service motions.

Roddick's serve may be big but it looks weird.

What's weird about Baghdatis' service action?

I don't like the form. its look so "go for broke" looking.

Dolgopolov's motion looks there's no motion to it

Mayer's motion looks like there's so much swing going into it. Dumb.

Troicki for me. Cilic as well has an awkward looking serve.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Kohli's looks weird (not stupid) but it's one of my faves Dolgo's always makes me laugh

Cilic is a good one. He should consider changing his serve. It looks dumb as hell and painful looking.

Re: Who are some players with weird/stupid service motions?

kohlschreiber has a camp service motion somehow.

all the guys with really low or really high ball tosses looks weird to me; dolgo, navarro, montanes...soderling, hrbaty

then there's cilic with his ridiculous back arch. painful to watch
