If you don't understand it... Nevermind...

As far as huge-serving platform-stance servers, Pete Sampras is at the top of that list:

Thanks, Jonny, exactly what I'm looking for. If anyone has more material I would love to take a look at it.

Would A-Rod be considered platform? To my knowledge his feet don't kick in.

By definition, he is a platform-stance server (like Monfils is).

He is considered hybrid between pinpoint and platform.

He is considered hybrid between pinpoint and platform.Indeed. He employs the mechanics of a pinpoint stance, but doesn't slide his toes together. They begin in that position.

Almagro can hit in the 130s and usually has about 15 aces/match.
