Players who doesn't bounce the balls before serving?

I noticed Marion didn't try to bounce the balls like others would usually do and she just hit the serves after taking the balls. Any other players who does that?

I thought she did, but haven't seen her since last year and she's always shaking the motion up.

I can't think of any others

Jankovic~Hantuchova~Vakulenko~Zheng~Bammer~Goerges ~Cetkovska~Safarova~Lisicki

Zakopalova~Dulko~Paszek~Pironkova~Clijsters~Golovi n~K.Bondarenko~Bouchard~Tsurenko

Schiavone~Li~Petkovic~Perebiynis~Mirza~Morigami~Fe dak~Wickmayer~Peer

Re: Players who doesn't bounce the balls before serving?

I think Mathilde Johansson didn't bounce the ball some time ago, did she?

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

If I was playing her I would definitely not stand for that shit. I like her otherwise though.

Actually there are times where Bartoli bounces the ball. I remember because it is so weird. It's like a very hi-bounce.

It actually hurts me NOT to bounce the ball. Very strange to see someone not bounce it.

Marion used to bounce WITH the ball at one point! It was awesome.
