Who has the most stylish service action?

Personally I like Haas' serving action a lot, simple but elegant. Federer's and Safin's are also nice actions. At least they are unique, unlike a lot of the generic styles that are coming up these days. Also, I hate Roddick's serve, its all arm and nothing else.

Re: Who has the most stylish service action?

I really like Andy's serve... it looks so powerful and is just simple and effective, however if you're looking for a more conventional serve action I guess you'd have to go for Roger.

Re: Who has the most stylish service action?

Yes, roddick's serve is all arm, nothing else. Dont mind the legs, no, all that power as he bends down and explodes thru the ball. ALL ARMS!1!!! Llozl!!

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

How fast would Roddick serve if he didn't just use his arm ? Scary !

Xavier Malisse's serve is very stilish I think. So fluent and beautiful to watch.



COME ON BELGIANS !!!

Karsten Braasch

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

How does contorting your spine count as being simple?

Federer has the most fluent action.

Safin's is effective but places stress on the back.

Haas's service motion is quite heavy-handed.
