^ Nobody? Again, Paes, Bhupathi and the Bryan bros can read the ball extremely well and all have superior reflexes (perhaps even better than Roger). A slightly skewed "ready" may be fine for them but perhaps less so for many lesser players with non-elite skills/reflexes. Note that none of the players in the vid use the significant/exaggerated skew shown in the 2nd image in the OP.

BTW, is this what you mean by the samurai position?
