Which Russian woman has the best serve?

I think its between Sharapova and Petrova. Sharapova is great at holding service. While Petrova has a bigger serve, and more 1st service variety. Sharapova definitely has the better 2nd serve. Kuznetsova serve comes in 3rd, only because it is easy to read.

Re: Which Russian woman has the best serve?

You snubbed Dementieva? She deserved at least a nomination!!

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

Sharapova. Those other players get broken way more than her.

Re: Which Russian woman has the best serve?

What about Bychkova. She probably has the most powerful of all russian players.

Re: Which Russian woman has the best serve?

Sharapova,more variety.She can hit an ace where she wants.

Petrova is more about power but not really about variety.

Re: Which Russian woman has the best serve?

Sharapova has the pacier serve off both 1st and second deliveries. Picks her spots well. I do love Sveta's more though, less predictable with the abrieviated action and she has such a wonderful kick second serve.

I'd say sharapova or Sveta, both different style of servers but effective nonetheless.

of course Petrova has much pacier serves than sharpy!! She cango above 190 kmph at times!! Plusshe has much better placement than Sharpy!! Having better serve and getting broken moreare two separate issues!!You dont hold serves just using your serves!! If you just compare serves, Nadia has muchhh bigger serve(1st serve atleast)..

Re: Which Russian woman has the best serve?

Petrova has the best serve technically.
Smooth natural action, high toss and a lovely whiplash crack on contact.
