I would say maria but the way Venus punished that thing inside the baseline at Wim 05 showed me it still needs more time to develop into a slighty faster serve. Davenport/Serena/Venus(when shes actually hitting good second serves) can lay claim to that title.

Team Williams
Princess of Power: Serena Williams
21 time grand slam champion, Tours best fighter, Olympic Champion
Queen of Grass: Venus Williams
7 time grand slam champion, Olympic Champion,
The Tour Standard! .... still haha!

Not being rude, but just because you have the fastest, doesn't mean it is the best. And I have to defend Dinara Safina. I was impressed with her serve and overall play against Hinis in the Pacific Life Open. Her serve is a tad bit inconsistant, but when she gets that bad boy under control, players are not going to want to see her on the other side of the net.

That's what I was getting at. Her kick serve is one of the best.

I wasn't saying that speed is the main factor, but a male player (Ivanisevic?) once commented that Venus doesn't know where her serve is heading half the time- obviously you included her because she has a fast serve

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Zarina Diyas, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

Sampras said that.

And its kinda true. Venus doesn't really place her serve well at all.

She used to. Back in 2001 it was kinda scary. Watch her 2001 Wimbledon matches. She hardly lost points.
