In Becker's book, I recall him comparing this motion to the winding of a clock, or a pendulum (I forget the exact term) 2) The pause at the trophy position 3) In the second video above, there is some similarity between the take-back of the racquet that Becker does, and the smooth and circular take back that the first server in the video (Gerald Patterson) does. Can this be attributed to using a heavier racquet? I tried imitating Becker's service motion recently, and I did notice an increase in power on the serves I was hitting. Becker has the best service motion, IMO. I am wondering why more instructors do not teach this motion, which seems to have some clear benefits in terms of increased power. Has it gone out of style?
