Question DISCUS: Who have the wierdest service motion at the WTA tour ??

I've seen some pretty ugly service motions but the most wierdest is Pattys!
I just don't like the way she moves when she serves!

BTW Sharapovas looks best!

Bartoli... there's no doubt about that.
Serra Zanetti is classic too.

Ana Ivanović.

Yeah, Bartoli!

BTW, Serena's service motion is the best!

Patty's serve is very fluid and beautiful to watch and it's one of the best 5 serves in the women game IMO and a very underrated shot (like her FH )

Bartoli
Serra Zanetti
Conchita M
Shaughnessy (still effective) come to mind

Anastasia Myskina


Radwanska - S. Williams - V. Williams - Kerber

Effective enough against Top 10 Patty it seems.

Davenport !!

no I'm kidding... Lindsay has a wonderful service motion, the most efficient to my mind (Tatiana is not too far away)

I think it's Bartoli (maybe Likhovsteva or Groenefeld).

Bartoli has the weirdest, most bizarre service motion ever. My favorites on the women's tour are Davenport's and Golovin's.

Mauresmo also has a weird - and ugly - service motion. Justine changes hers so much it's hard to really put a definitive comment on it, sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't. I think her new one looks quite fluid to me. It's nice.
