Does Korda land on front or back foot after serve?
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sAz1...elated&search=

look at 1:30,

land on front foot on 1st
land on back foot on 2nd

I always thought Korda was old school and taught to land on backfoot like Becker, Kureca etc, but he seem he can choose whichever foot he want

How do you hit a serve landing on your back foot? You cant explode through the ball.

Connors also lands on back foot
 
I think its easier to hit slice. But you get less power.

Not only Becker but apparently some players from previous generations did as well.

I will not view the video but if what you say is true then it's unusual for a player to mix up their motion in that way. It might be partly why Korda had an erratic serve.
