When I first saw Courier practicing serves and first few serve games in one of his matches, I thought the same thing. How could he of won those slams with that. However, once he warmed up his serves got more pop, more spin and better angles. He serves just as hard today as he did in the past, but at times he can not hit the side of a barn.

Here are a few high speed clips of his first severs from a year ago. The returner is no slack and only a few years off the main tour.
