It's just an automatic, unconscious part of her service motion. I tried it once, and I 'smiled' too.

I actually tried it too 4 or 5 times and never got a serve in while smiling :hysteric:

because of her puffy face.:oh:

I guess she's trying to be as relax as she can when serving.:) and probably that's why she's pretty good with her serves.:)

I miss that... I miss her a lot. Does any current player smile while serving?

why did Boris Becker Stick his tongue out when he served? Not only that but why did he indicate which direction he was gonna serve based on his tongue? The point is players dont usually even realise they are doing these things... it just "is what it is".

It's just a tic that became a habit. I stick out my tongue every time I hit a slice. It's not intentional, it just happens.

OMG is that true? About the direction...

maybe she was thinking of the Krispy Kremes she'd enjoy once the match was over? :shrug:

yup, its true. here is a bit from an article on Boris and Agassi

"Agassi also recognized a subconscious tic of Becker’s – sticking out his tongue in the direction opposite of where he planned to serve – that made his massive serving easier to handle.
