WTF is Roddick's serve doing in this poll? IMO, it's his most watchable and most efficient shot.

If you had put Roddick's BH there, I would agree that it suits this poll pretty much. But why serve? What the heck?

Roddick's serve is of course very efficient but personnally i find it very ugly(and dangerous too for his elbow).
That's actually a good example of a shot being ugly but still very effective.

Yep,me too.
I'm especially amazed he hasn't had more elbow problems in his career.

You just have to watch his last match against Nalbandian

Ok, mate, thanks for explanation! At least, now I understand your idea.

Still, I disagree with you here. But let it be that way

Yeah, I'm quite sure that I can actually hit a better backhand than Karlovic, he is pathetic.
