Is he the only one on tour who serves with his feet together before the serve? I play exactly like him, it is almost freaky.

He does, I never noticed. I will have to check, you got pics or vids?

It is a very good, reletively longer motion that he get's his entire body into. Too bad he isn't a little taller.

I serve like that, and I started doing that because Andy Roddick does it, and I liked it better.

It is a shorter and more compact stroke. Some people love it or hate it.
I think Gael Monfils serves with his feet together as well.

I start with my feet together, but I take a long swing unlike Roddick.

If you played exactly like him, you'd be on Tour and not here, lol.

Gonzalez is similar. Others with abbreviated swings... Gasquet, Gaudio, etc.

Roddick doesn't take a long swing at all. It is defenitely one of the shortest motions ever on the tour, besides most of the Croations (sp?)(especially Ivanisevic) and Roscoe Tanner.

You're right, was watching Monfils match yesterday... feet together like Massu.
