There was a thread before on what your favorite serve style was. I thought, "meh, why not have a thread like this?"

My serve style most resembles Roddick's, especially with the abbreviated motion. No, this wasn't a conscious decision - If anything, I think Federer's motion is most fluent and looks easy to emulate. The problem was, my second serve kick delivery always used an abbreviated motion. I couldn't make a regular second serve without my racket going straight back, shoot. So I changed my first service motion to conceal my second better, and there you have it. Weird, yeah.

Not sure if this belongs in the GM thread but it is interesting :yeah:

I guess I've got a bit of Ljubicic (preperation especially), Roddick and maybe Sharapova ..... except far worse that any of them :lol:

I would say Krajicek, I tried to serve like him when I was a kid and it's stuck with me all these years.

I have some Federer in my wind-up but I have a much more explosive action than him (though obviously get nothing like the pace he generates from a relaxed motion!).

I've also been told I serve similar to Roscoe Tanner?!?! I can't find any videos of him serving, but understand this is a compliment as he had a huge serve with the old wooden racquets!

Sometimes my serve looks like that one of Volandri,so you can just imagine it :haha:

But I usually serve like Davydenko/Moya a bit of both.

I think I could also serve like Youzhny :p

Mario Ancic. Since the first time I saw him in 2002 when he beat Federer at Wimbledon, I wanted to have his serve. It is a bit different, but the motion is the same.

:scratch:

Mine's old school. Laid up and very consistent toss...full, looping backswing. Learned it 20+ years ago and haven't bothered to change it.

And I'm a one-bounce only, no primping kinda gal. No Nole endless bouncing or Maria preening.

Federer's, but a little more shorter.
