Djokovic's return to his old serve pays off - 02-18


His return of serve has been heralded for years, but at this year's Australian Open, Novak Djokovic boasted a significantly improved return to serve. When the 15-time major singles winner came back from an extended, injury-induced outage from the sport, he had a different, somewhat-abbreviated motion on serve. Since then, he has incrementally–and now, decisively and forcefully—forsaken that. Truly, he has practically "trashed" that motion, in sportswriter Tom Perrotta's words.
