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

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

    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.

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