Why does Dimitrij go down to do his backhand serve?

Hi Dipayan,

This is a good question.  I think he uses it for momentum to get his legs into his serve and then move into position for the next ball.  Really it is a habit and routine that he feels comfortable with.  It is not something that I would recommend for most players to copy.

I've always wondered how much sort of unnecessary burn out to his knees/leg muscles he's using up doing this preserve motion. But he is 4th? In the world and a professional athlete so I will just assume he's fine with it.
