    I know it was an exo, but at least he doesn't foot fault.. (watch Suzuki's front foot)

    And before you say it, he also beat rafa at the AO last year, and stands 5'8" in his tennis shoes...

    Its not a foot fault if the linesmen don't call it. Just because he slides his front foot up doesn't make it a foot fault.

    Ask Woodrow, lol. There is a whole discussion on Suzuki's serve somewhere, but I couldn't quickly find it. I know it started from someone suggesting Brian Battistone foot faults (he doesn't) and Woodrow chiming in by suggeting Suzuki was closer to a foot fault that Battistone could ever be...

    Anyway, back to the OP, surely David Ferrer or Michael Chang are far better poster boys for the vertically unpretentious than Suzuki will ever be?
