I don't care how fast/hard Venus can/has serve/served.... Molik has the heaviest serve in the womens game - no doubt.
Serena, not far behind Molik because she has a very good second serve - with kick similar to Molik.... but still - behind Molik in terms of pure weight.

Davenport has a very good serve also.... But Serena and Alicia are still better.

Venus can blast her serve - everyone knows... but her inconsistency and poor second serve make it less credible.

Overall... Molik surely must win this poll.

At this moment, Davenport.

Serena in her prime had a sick serve.

Davenport currently. Serena serve has been very ba lately. She can't hold serve as easily anymore as she seems to be lazy about serving

easily molik with
davenport and serena coming close behind

i think alicia's second serve is what sets her above the rest
her first serve is amazing
but she still hits aces off of her second serve

Moliks serve is explosive. Davenport is second for her consistency.
Serena's serve this year is very average.

I would say Molik it is a weapon on both first and second serves, She has so much variety on it and her second serve is by far the best in the womens game.

I would say Venus had the best serve in womens tennis back in 2000/2003. She would serve in the 115-120's a lot on first serves, she has the record for the fastest serve at 126 (I believe). But I think soon enough her serve is going to come back to her.
