What have Sharapova and Sampras in common?

It's the serve sytle! It's pretty much the same cool style!









I couldn't find any pic where you can see Maria's feet, cause she does the same movement as Pete does, before the serve! It's a damn cool serve-style! I love it!

I've noticed the serve similarities too. But Sampras hit his serve harder than Sharapova does.

Yes, but the similarity especially at the way they lift their left foot before they blister the serve is awesome! If Masha would put the ball in that hole of the racket like Pete does it would have been exactly the same style.

Robert Landsdorp coached Pete as well so perhaps that service action is one that he teaches his students.

Yes, they talked about this on Eurosport during the YEC. It's a pretty distinctive action.

Does someone know if Masha admires any tennis player?
