how many players have flat serves?

I was playing in a match agins one of my friends, and I serve the ball flat about 98% of the time and he was saying that I need to hit other types and no pros play flat serves. and that got me thinking how many pro players hit a flat serve more than 50% of the time.

Jelena Dokic. Both her first and second serves are flat, which is why she hits 25728705 double faults per match.

I'd say Misa has a pretty kick-ass slice-service out wide as well...

Lindasy IMHO has a very flat serve too, but it is not in a way that is FLAT but INCONTROLLABLE. Rather, she is pretty accurate and she can hit consistently flat 100mph+ to the corners. So that is why I think her serve is deadly if she is on the groove.

I think linzi slices her serve a lot, especially at wimbledon. Wicked slice out wide on the deuce court and right up the tee on the ad court. Thats why it is so difficult to return.

Pierce can hit a lot of flat 1st serves in some matches but her 2nd serve usually has a hell of a kick!

All players first serves are flat, all their second serves have spin.

Except Dokic, which, as someone else said, is the cause of her 20387624756 DF's per match.

Then there are other players like Serra Zanetti and Pin whose serves are so horrid and slow you can't even tell what's going on.
