No see, you went the other way. If Federer served underhand, he'd sure as hell be able to play D1 singles. That does not mean that someone with only an underhand serve who tries to emulate Federer would be able to do the same. BirdWalker has talent, absolutely. However, if D1 players are 5.5+, the serve is irrelevant as those guys would be able to tee off on the returns. I never once said his serve is bad, I'm just saying that being realistic is the only fair way to help someone reach their goals.
