Post Who has the best kick serve??

Since I have no idea what a kick serve looks like, I want to watch a player who has a great kick serve. So who has the best one?

You'll find the best example of a kick serve on the mens' tour.

On the WTA- look at Testud, hers is good. Lisa Raymond's is OK. Davenport's is above-average.

Monica Seles
Lindsay Davenport
Kim Clijsters
Shino Tsurubuchi

Sandrine has the best and the most consistent. Serena's is also very good.

Good Luck In 2005:

[Maja Matezvic] [Karolina Sprem] [Eleni Daniilidou] [Maria Kirilenko] [Jelena Jankovic]

Sandrine's is good but I think it is pretty much accepted that Hantuchova has the best kick serve on the tour.

as mentioned, Hantuchova and Testud are the two that first come to mind for me. Great kick serves.

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

Serena can hit a great Kick-serve out wide on the ad-court!
