I think her serve is the best asset on court. Outside court, her bikini....

Serve, definitely. Such an amazing weapon! as the serve goes, so goes Serena.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Re: What is Serena Williams' best asset on the court?

I think her serve is the best asset, but I think the forehand is the barometer for how well she is playing. When she loses, she hits a lot of errors. Most of those errors come off the forehand. If she's playing well, her forehand gives up very few errors, forced or unforced. So her serve is what helps her the most, but her forehand is what needs to be working against the best.

Re: What is Serena Williams' best asset on the court?

serve.. nothing else comes close! her mental attitude and game is strong, but i think its so strong because of the power of her serve.. she doesnt have much to worry about while serving, which makes it easy to be so mentally tough...

Her serve. If you took anything away that would damage her game the most it would be her serve.
