Pat Rafter Serve

Dislikes:

Tosses while weight on his back foot

Severe back arch, and poor balance — makes it extremely difficult for him to rotate fully through the serve with his hips and core.

Power generation primarily coming from the shoulder

Brings right foot to the right outside of his front foot, causing an opening of the hips prematurely.

Practically zero degrees of lateral rotation of the shoulders. Compare that to John McEnroe.
