I always loved Mauresmo's when she adjusted her service motion after a shoulder injury - the very short take back, the perfect knee bend, very unreadable. Always looked like she could serve 1000 times and not get tired.

Serena and Barty have textbook-perfect motions, from the placement to the knee bend to the uncomplicated motion to the wrist snap.

Kenin has a weird one , Errani is ugly
Serena and Barty has the best looking
Kenin is bizarre with how long she stares at the ball in when the ball is already tossed.

I find Osaka's service motion very overrated. Sure she can serve very hard but I wonder how does she avoid getting some injury with that technique. But it's kind of incredible how she has one of the fastest serves despite not so perfect biomechanics.

Prettiest: Ostapenko and Konta
Ostapenko has a very ugly service motion. Btw. I don't find Świątek's serve particularly visually apealing either. Konta has that ridiculous high ball bouncing routine that is annoying to watch.

who comes to mind? (I won't use ugly, but certainly not good): Errani, Brengle

Siniakova isn't great either as someone else has mentioned

Random choice but I always think Jankovic's serve circa 2008-2010 looked very smooth.

Of current players, Serena's obviously is textbook. Barty also has a good service motion- no kinks, no obvious technical glitches.

Bad looking: Sara EhRanny, Ostapeko.
