Let’s disregard their heights and just look at service technique. Have a vote.

Their serves look similar at first but quite different. Interested in an analysis.

Fittingly they had an excellent match in the US open a couple of years ago.

Thiem.

Trophy position is actually pretty similar to Roddick, it's just a slower and thus less loose and explosive motion

Really, if you're 15cm shorter but you can serve much faster I think that's solid evidence you have a better serve motion
