Ill start with mine..My most fav serve is slice serve from ad court down at T moving away from body of opponent...Its soo effective this serve..But I can not serve wide on backhand sadly..Either body serve or down T...

That is my favourite serve. The one Lindsay hits SOOOO WELL. And I feel I'm not taking that much of a risk when hitting it.

The one that goes in. I don't use it much, but it sure is effective.

Somehow I feel i serve much better on breakpoints..Maybe its just mental thing but once i did 3 dfs 0 40 and then hit 3 really amazing serves..Really I dunno where they came from..But yeah the slice serve from ad court is my fav tho...I wish i cud hit kick serves once in a while..But i have no idea how..

Heavy topspin or slice from the left side... I'm a lefty and just that serve gets me heaps of points

My fav serve is the one down the centre on the ad side with slice that keeps going away from the returner. Lindsay and Serena are class at this

My favourite serve is the one that gets in. No seriously it's not that bad but it's still light years away from the rest of my game. That is why I have a soft spot for people like Dementieva and Dokic lol
