View Full Version : What happened to the stylish servers?

Currently there are not many good servers who also posses a stylish fluent motion.
Ljubicic is ok I guess but it isnt very stylish. Not ancic either really. Roddick is Courier like but explosive. Karlovic is just tall. Pim Pim is ok, a bit like Krajicek but not quite. Fish has a nice classic motion I think and Roger but thats about it.
I mean 10 years ago we had Stich Krajicek Ivanisevic Sampras to name but a few. Serves are faster but not really better. Why is that?
Is it because of the bigger headsizes in todays game allows for jerkier motions, timing not as important anymore perhaps?

Tim henman has a nice motion, but overall you're right.

I think Murray's is pretty fluid :).

I think Murray and Safin have two of the smoothest motions these days.

Murray is fluid but he lacks snap as of yet. I miss Stich. Now that guy had a smooth service motion.
