Most beautiful service motions

Since its the off-season, let's discuss who do you feel has the most beautiful/fluid service motions. Watching the Stosur vs Peng exhibition match, I realized how labored Peng's was compared to Stosur.

Re: Most beautiful service motions

Bartoli's would take the cake for least aesthetically pleasing, no pun intended. But in general, i find abbreviated serves tend to be less fluid.

Re: Most beautiful service motions

Vaidisova's Amongst active Players, it's clearly Serena. Such a fluid swing I also liked Pattys

N. VAIDISOVA - D. HANTUCHOVA - T. GOLOVIN - A. BONDARENKO - A. SZAVAY - M. PIERCE

Re: Most beautiful service motions

i liked Daniela´s service motion in 2007 and 2008, then she has changed it a bit, and also Sharapova´s 2004 - 05 was very beautiful

Maria Sharapova

Re: Most beautiful service motions

Coco Vandeweghe has a beautiful fluid kicker with a terrific shoulder turn and knee bend, and no hitch anywhere in her motion. It really pops, too. If the rest of her game were as good as her serve (and if she lost a lot of weight), she could be really dangerous in tournaments.

"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005

Re: Most beautiful service motions

Serena, obviously. Mona Barthel has a really fluid service motion too and I like Benesova's too.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Re: Most beautiful service motions

*cue Williamsova fans *

I also agree with the ones saying Vandeweghe and '04 Pova. Bartoli's service motion might be aesthetically unpleasing, but she gets some of the best racquet head acceleration during her serve of the entire Tour. I would also say Marino has a beautiful and excellent serve (sometimes those two don't always go together).

Re: Most beautiful service motions

someone who i thought had the most bizarre motion was Capriati, walked up to serve and it was all rushed (well id have to add marions multiple motions also, her multiple motions are the equivilent to someone having multiple personalities they're different)

Best Motions Serena, Maria 2004-2005, Davenport *i like it*

Sharapova in 2005.
