Is anyone on female tour serving like some Argentine guys?

Where they don't strech the serving arm in full (like Zabaleta or Puerta/Squillari use to do). Does it change the speed of the serve much? Zabaleta could still serve around 210 km/h on hardcourts

I'm surpised that no WTA lady is serving like that especially with some many with back problems ... maybe some do but i haven't noticed or it isn't so extreme

Äre 2007 Downhill and GS GOLD: Aksel LUND SVINDAL (NOR) WC overall champion for 2006/07 and 2008/09; winner of 2 crystal globes in GS and SC
Val d’Isère 2009 SC GOLD and Super-G BRONZE
Vancouver 2010: Super-G GOLD, downhill SILVER, GS bronze
Current crushes: Johannes STRATE Tom BATEMAN Éric BRUNEAU Greyston HOLT David MIESMER Raphaël LENGLET Richard RANKIN Tom LEEB

Well Gaustin Gaudio's service motion is definitely different. When he takes hi racquet back it is pointed up until he goes into the swing.

Guillermo Coria's serve is more textbook.

I have not seen any ladies serving like Gaston, though.
