Re: Who has the best serve in women's tennis??

Serena, and only Serena - Her seconds serve ROCKS, the best femal kick serve ever, and her first is HOT.

Venus has a good first serve (the hardest in the femal tennis) - Her second serve is crap, sorry Venus!

Serena Personal quotes - "I'm afraid I'm already a shopaholic. Fortunately, I'm no longer in denial, and the first step to recovering is getting out of denial."... Work it girl"

Re: Who has the best serve in women's tennis??

I think Stosur has the best serve because it is so powerful and sets the point up well for her forehand. Also Stosurs second serve has alot of kick which makes it very hard to return!!!

◊ Samantha Stosur ◊

◊ Casey Dellacqua ◊ Olivia Rogowska ◊ Monika Wejnert ◊ Jelena Dokic ◊
◊ Laura Robson ◊ Sabine Lisicki ◊ Timea Bacsinszky ◊ Dinara Safina ◊

Re: Who has the best serve in women's tennis??

davenport, petrova and vaidisova are the only ones missing from the already mentioned, and that just about sums up the best servers these days.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Re: Who has the best serve in women's tennis??

stosur serve, especially her second serve is good, with lots of kick. its the same with ivanovic. but i would say the most devastating serve would be serena williams

Re: Who has the best serve in women's tennis??

With the exception of Justine and Ivanovic, I think the options you have listed are impressive. A lot of times when people do poles like this they leave off players like Petrova, Stousur, and Vaidisova, glad to see you included them.

I take exception with Justine and Ivanovic for different reasons. With Justine I think her serve can be just as deadly as anyone else on the list, but what hurts her is the amount of points she also gives away with her serve. She's not as bad as Lena_D but she double faults a lot more than the players she's included with. They're able to hit harder and go for more and also keep their double faults to a minimum. Once JuJu can do that I'll consider her a great server. As for Ivanovic it's funny because traditionally players with great forehands usually have great serves. She does have a pretty good serve- good placement, loads of pace, and she doesn't have a lot of double faults, but she gets broken a lot more than a person with her serve should. I think she has enourmous potential and will become a great server in time.

The only player I think you left off would be Patty Schnyder. She wins a lot of points on her serve. She's a lefty and has some of the best placement in the game. In any given tournament she's usually in the top 10 for aces and first serve points won.

My list of the best servers (both first and second serves) would look like this:

1. Serena
2. Petrova
3. Sharapova- She can call on her serve when she really needs it
4. Vaidisova
5. Schnyder - She's the most under-rated of of the big servers
6. Molik
7. Stosur
8. Venus- top 3 for first serves
9. Justine tied with Mauresmo
10. Kuznetsova- deadly when she's on
11. Shenay Perry
12. Tatiana Golovin
13. B. Mattek
14. Ivanovic
15. Clijsters

Honarble mention: Safina, Pannetta, Groenfeld, S. Bremond, and Hantuchova.

Funny having a list of best servers and no longer mentioning Lindsay...

At the moment, I'd say Petrova.
