    Anyone think Monfils serve resemble Roddick's serve? The biggest difference is that Monfils tosses the ball higher so there is a longer pause between the racquet takeback and contact. Anyone else think they look kinda similar?

    This has only been discussed 5,000 times before. Of course he copied his service motion from Roddick. So what? It isn't copyrighted or anything.

    Its been discussed since Monfils was in the juniors that he directly copied Roddick's serve. He has said it himself in interviews.

    I had no idea. I've never noticed any discussion on the subject.
