Federer serving better than ever... Karlobot peaking at 36. Djokovic's serve has also vastly improved.
No, sorry. Novak's serve was fine in 2007/08 then Todd Martin happened. 2009/10 was wasted time for Djokovic and we've discussed this so many times. Too many of you guys are too young or simply don't remember.It does if you back it up with facts as I did with Nole!
To be fair, Nole had a hitch in his serve even when he won his first Australian Open title. He had a serve that can be/needed to be improved. I don't know what Fed could change in his serve as it's always been rock solid. I haven't studied Dr. Ivo's serve to know.It's been pointed out by ex *greats* that Nole has adjusted long term body behaviours to improve his serve. Example explained before RG his left elbow used to be out more when he served some years ago........he has retrained himself to keep it closer to maintain better balance.
So yes Nole has improved and will continue to improve!
Modern rackets and strings could improve a great servers service as they get older. Sports technology seems to improve every year, which makes today's players seem superior to those of 20-40 years ago.No, no, no, no, NO! Don't you DARE suggest that any part of Federer's game could get any better with age!
I see what you're getting at, but we should be comparing today's youngsters to today's veterans in order to contorl for the technology factor. Whilst your serve definitely wouldn't get faster over time as you age, practice could make it more accurate, and most of the time it's accuracy that makes a serve an ace.Modern rackets and strings could improve a great servers service as they get older.
