...player's service motion face ?
Mine is Agassi's worried-eyes/brow-knitted face... he looks like an 18th century painting's martyr... ;)

And my theory for Dent's face is: I have been trying to copy Pete's serve all my life and, god damn it!!!, it ain't working!!!

I like the way he turned the head on the toss as well...
He inspired Roddick at a certain point :

Jurgen Melzer has to be my favourite when it comes to the serve, he has a really nice service motion, Lopez would be second just because it's so pretty. 2 serves I can't stand are Hrbaty-that ball toss is annoying, and Mirnyi, I CANT STAND IT, it's totally weird.

TheMightyFed
02-08-2005, 10:18 AM
and Mirnyi, I CANT STAND IT, it's totally weird.
Mirnyi's is weird I agree, but I saw him in flesh in Paris Bercy and it's quite impressive and the motion itself is beautiful. The little preparation before with the back and forth movement is boring though. I preferd Becker's, kind of "you're gonna see this one" rituals...

Federer's face is very relaxed as always ("I kick your ass with no effort"), and he's got the same lower-lip-beating style as Hewitt.. ;)

Its to do with his personality, he has the personality many people dislike (including myself) and when you have an ugly game paired with that, you are going to have many people who dislike you.

I'm honestly curious. I mean he's not my fave (because of his game), but I always thought his demeanor was rather endearing. He's honest, gracious to the point of self-deprecation and has genuine sharp wit. Am I missing something?
