Cuz that's how a serve is supposed to look like. Wrist pronation to allow elbow bend followthrough allowing for more spin/power.

It's time to kick *** and chew bubblegum...
and I'm all out of gum.

Go to one of the threads called "greatest serve ever" and
see pictures of Sampras serves for a ideal example of pronations.

And it's actually NOT "wrist" pronating but entire arm.
Actually Federer's arm is straight pronating which means
he is kinda stiff on this one.
