Which other women have terrible serves?

We all know Elena Dementieva's serve is terrible, which other women have really bad serves?

I think Martina's is very average in terms of pace but she mixed it up well. Patty's is fairly average and same goes for Schiavone.

Anybody else?

Camille Pin is top 100 ... She is ranked 75 which is her career high singles ranking ...

Re: Which other women have terrible serves?

Venus can have a pretty terrible serve.

Camille Pin...

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.
Martina Hingis - "No one else played like Hingis - no one could."

Yeah, I agree, Martina can use her serve very effectively when she mixes it up well. Patty's 1st serve can be BOOMING actually!

Venus Masha Caro Sloane
Timea Aga Bencic Petra Kristyna&Karo Keys Dani
Osaka Nastia Vika Petko Simona Broady Robi CiCi Mladenovic Garcia JJ Errani Duval


Martina Hingis Forever!!!

Emelie Loit, Jelena Kostanic and Tathiana Garbin also have fairly dodgy serves ...

How can we have 10 posts without the name Antonella Serra Zanetti coming up.

Re: Which other women have terrible serves?

I was just about to say Antonella. Most club players have a better serve than her.

And as for Patty, her first serve is very deceptive. I'd probably say it's one of the better serves actually

Daniela Hantuchova.

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

Re: Which other women have terrible serves?

Patty's serve is dangerous for sure, cause she is left-handed and it's hard to return it
