I didn't really notice more body serves, I'll pay attention to it next time. His serve is really all about placement now though, it's becoming slower and slower!
I think body serve is great strategy against offensive players like Tsonga for instance and Djokovic in particular who can whip the forehands at the same speed. For instance Tsongs whipped an out wide-serve of Roger's to a cross-court winner at an amazing speed. In those cases, body serves can be very effective because the opponent will not have much room to play with.
