I was more just speaking generally, not singling out any one player's stroke. Since you bring it up though, i concur, AD's service motion is extremely awkward from what I've seen on the videos posted on this site. I can't help but think that at some point when the competition gets fiercer, it will become a huge liability. That is a stroke I would def say is flawed.
