I've just watched this recent match of Petr Korbel (!) against Patrick Franziska. I noticed that Petr often intensively bounces on his toes while Franziska tosses the ball and serves. See, for example, the point played out from 1:12. Why is he doing that?
That constant movement helps him to move. Often players will find that if they are static, it is more difficult to get into motion. By starting with the bouncing the next movement is a little easier.
You will notice though that his top half is quite stable. His eyes are not bouncing up and down even though his legs are moving.
