Current or retired ATP or WTA player. A youtube link to appreciate would be excellent.
can't tell who's the other player. Looks like Mcenroe, video too pixel-ly
What was the context of that Lendl serve? It looked way too easy.
Chang may may gotten Lendl with that one but Lendl absolutely mastered the dink serve.
Most of those serves are one-offs meant to throw off their opponents.
Two players whose serves were highlighted in a Tennis Channel production, 'Best of Five: Worst Shots' are Jay Berger's and Karsten Braasch's serves. Awkward, yet effective.
not an ace though
why did Lendl get so mad when Chang did it to him then?
that is a sick serve though. I wish the video was better quality and had a replay so I could copy his motion
yep...it was mac
I couldn't find a You Tube clip, but the weirdest motion I can remember was by a Czech girl named Eva Melicharova.
She played mixed doubles against McEnroe/Graf in their first round match at Wimbledon. It has been so long since I have last seen it that I can't remember exactly what it looked like. It seems like she had a bunch of herky-jerky contortions before she hit the ball.
I do remember that it was so weird that Steffi was laughing at her. And it seemed like the crowd was giggling every time she had to serve. Here is a link to an article about the match and a reference to Graf's reaction.
Ha that kind of reminds me of Victor Troickis serve.
I am at work and cant see the youtube links, but my vote goes to Brad Gilbert! The backscratcher!
That looks pretty cool actually
I believe you are thinking of Jay Berger.
Years ago at Wimbeldon there was a hitch serve much worse than that. I remember the crowd laughing at the poor girl.
I can't remember her name but am sure it may have been Novatna she played.
Does anybody remember this?
Got to be bartoli's
Didn't Steffi pull out of the mix, after reaching the singles final I think? And John was pretty mad at her for doing that? Too bad, they could have gone all the way to win the tournament.
Karsten Braasch for sure. I read somewhere that he smoked between change overs too.
dementieva and jay berger
yup you are right! I was thinking of Berger! Thanks
The other player is definitely Mac... and I think the one serving was Nastase the original bad boy.
