What really made Berger's serve ugly looking was that he let the racquet dangle loosely behind him as he waited for the rest of his toss/swing. He didn't bring his racquet up and hold it down, or even up, but just let it fall back. (THIS isn't a bad thing, in my opinion, but it was ugly). His first serve was a decent shot, good pace, he wasn't a big guy, well under 6 foot, so it wasn't a consistent weapon, but he could get a few aces. His second serve was adequate but rather predictable.
