Bartoli Video clip Score: two / 5

    What? That is a very nice serve. If the ball was less to the right she’d be
    hitting it over her head. Great toss, great extension.

    defitnatly from whoever taught her the serve and never fixed it in time!

    I saw someone , at quit a swanky tennis club do a serve in the style of
    Bartoli , and it went

    lol, a Venus fan talking about bad serve technique.

    I can’t understand why she serves like this! I know it’s whatever works for
    you and I’m not saying she’s a bad player but seriously. How can whipping
    her racquet behind her back help her serve. I think that it would just take
    away power and speed. After she whips it behind her she’s still dropping
    the head and jumping up to hit, really it’s just a waste of a motion.

    nesto najretardiranije sto sam video u zivotu

    It,s not orthodox technique but it works . I get told I throw the ball to
    the side of me when I seve , but people still find it a fucking hard serve
    to return on account of a very low bounce and a lot of power behind it .
    Iher serve may look ugly and wrong for so many reasons but it works . Who
    cares if it,s awkward , if IT WORKS

    I agree, technically its correct – its her motion that leads up to her
    racket take-back and ball toss that is peculiar.

    There are some very strange ticks in this serve, but it is FAR from the
    ugliest I’ve ever seen. The final motion to the ball, after all the weird
    rocking and wrist cocking is done, is pretty textbook. And the fairly short
    toss and timing is pretty good.

    what a retarded serve. who taught her that?!

    Now she added that fucking ritual of bouncing the ball 4 times before every
    damn serve, also claiming that her IQ reaches 175. I can’t tell which of
    the two makes her more pathetic.

    @xocxnxtox123 Seriously, how the fuck does this even have 11 likes?

  • By vitumx, May 3, 2015 @ 12:21 pm

    She’s not fat compared to Serena, Svetlana or Kaia so SHUSH.

    @marioenbruselas I like Mirco CroCop!

  • By xocxnxtox123, May 3, 2015 @ 1:23 pm

    @Bashevani Have you seen her play recently??? She NEVER STOPS
    BOUNCING…EVER! In between points when players are catching their breath
    and getting ready for the next point, she’s jumping up and down, back and
    forth, and constantly swinging her racquet like a crazy person. It bugs me
    soooo much!

  • By ryan12629, May 3, 2015 @ 1:37 pm

    ugliest serve ever

  • By ozonese7en, May 3, 2015 @ 1:47 pm

    yea i really don’t like her motion.. she changes it every tournament or so,
    but i’ve never seen a version that i liked. although i’d have to say her
    groundstrokes are crazy! she beat my jankovic 🙁

  • By Colby West, May 3, 2015 @ 2:29 pm

    okayy… yall need to cut her some slack.. who cares is she’s not pretty..
    she’s not out there to look pretty,she’s out their to play tennis.

  • By AtKs5star, May 3, 2015 @ 2:41 pm

    Wauw that really Bartoli, Could`t recognize Her ( The greeak Helena
    with miditerrannean ocean hair? ) With brand new technique ! Note how the
    rackethand never goes much under her chest in the first swing! ..OK ! ..but
    would it influence the second serv rutine too much ? Must be Melborne 09 !

    Just pause at 0:22 and say it’s a terrible serve. She hits the ball right
    in the perfect position stretching her arm exactly how you’re supposed to
    do it. …but it does look horribly awkward xD.

  • By dalmatinkaslunce, May 3, 2015 @ 4:05 pm

    she is a pig and her dad is so cross eyed u don’t know where he is looking.
    Plus he is a miscreant and nasty on tour

  • By butolina, May 3, 2015 @ 4:15 pm
