Default A question about servebots...

To start this off, servebots are my most favorite type of player. Karlovic and Raonic are my favorite players, excluding Roger Federer of course


Now, I opened the thread to ask a question, which goes:


Right now Im watching the Djokovic-Querrey match, and Djokovic is returning exceptionally well. Querrey is serving bombs left and right, but Djokovic returns 80% of them and places Querrey in defensive positions.

One thing I dont understand though- why does Querrey keep serving those 220kmh bombs when he sees that it isnt working?


It really bothers me why servebots always put those huge serves in. Why not put a kicker in the mix, or maybe just a 180kmh out wide? Surely placing a couple of serves out wide would confuse Djokovic and make him think, wouldnt it?


Any idea? The only person who mixes up serves well is Raonic, but even he is bad in it.

Thoughts?

Servebots are dumb people in their nature. Also, some of them don't even have the skill to kick them. Servebots are a crime to tennis. They should play basebol instead and try to hit as many Homeruns as they can...

Default Re: A question about servebots...

A top 20, or even a top 100 servebots should be able to mix his serves up, because its the only weapon they have, its as simple as that. Karlovic has a wonderful kicker, but he doesnt use it.


Whats even worse is the fact that when they face break points they choose to MIX IT UP when they werent doing it the whole match, really stupid.

Not watching the match, but by the live scores it seems that Querrey took your advice. He held three times, and got 5 aces in the second set till now, as apposed to 0 and 1 in the first.

I agree, Karlovic is actually pretty strategically smart. He has really good intensions but has no real weapons except his serve, hence the failures.

Could this be the GOAT jinxing thread in MTF history? Querrey actually got a brain and started to use serve variety!

I'm a bit confused as well, many of these big servers like isner and karlovic have excellent kick serves, they should use them more often IMO

GOAT jinxing thread, sticky this thread please. I opened it when Querrey lost 6-0, and look at this.

Negative, nothing you touch, OP, is worthy of GOAT status.

Djokovic tanked, simple as.
