No, that would be Molik. Molik actually wins free points off her kicker to her opponent's BH. Stosur's kick second serve is overrated - and predictable. I watched her hit it against Vaidisova at Stanford and Nicole merely took a couple of long strides to the left and returned it with ease with that ugly, awkward looking BH of hers. Molik's kicker on the other hand bounces so high that, even if her opponent very well knows what's coming her way, there's nothing she can do about it.

And on topic, Molik again. Sharapova's second serve may be difficult (but not impossible) to attack, but it's Molik who wins the most free points off hers, and that's as good a criterium for effectiveness as any.

I definately agree. In 2004, especially at the AO, Alicia had a killer serve, first and second, that won her lots of free points agains Venus and Lindsay. It's not as good now, but once she picks her game up I'm sure it will improve again.
