Anyone else noticed it?
It was probably posted here over the last week somewhere, but i wasn't here, so tell me if it was posted here, & anyone who knows anything about it, please do tell :)
I remember Jenny changing her service motion to the Capri-kick, we all laughed at her back then. T'was fun.

Yes, I noticed that when I saw him play in Indian Wells this year. It's a pity, really. That abbreviated action he had last year was the ugliest, most unco-ordinated motion you could imagine and on the second serve he frequently just armed the ball into the middle of the box without using his legs at all, but it was still uniquely watchable.

His new one is a little more rhythmic but still looks somewhat odd, some commentators have noted that his ball toss is rather erratic when he throws it up instead of being still in his hand. Mind you, it certainly works - against Kuerten in Hamburg, he served the perfect game of four straight aces in the second set. Still lost the match, of course.
