....why are they always moving before the serve? Like they usually move left to right slightly, while the server is still bouncing the ball, is it just a focus/ritual thing?

I think it's just them warming up/starting their split step for the serve to react, for the most part anyway! :)

Yeah the swaying, idk, I guess I don't realize it much when I'm playing, but I see it on TV all the time. I don't sway either, but my return sucks so yeah, lmao.

I think it's just a habit/rhythm kind of a thing. At this point it totally happens subconsciously for them as they've probably been doing it for many years.

It is easier to move when you are already moving
