Who's your favourite big server with no game?

Second in a series of grasscourt-themed threads.

The Ay-Tee-Pee has always had big serving goons with no game aplenty. But what about the WTA? Who's your favourite otherwise sucky big server?

Kvitova * Garcia * Konjuh * Dodin * Robson * Haddad Maia

Re: Who's your favourite big server with no game?

How does Stosur have no game
She doesn't win purely because of her serve. She has decent groundies and can volley

She's 0-6 against Vaidisova. If that isn't a sign of certified suckitude, then I don't know what is.

Re: Who's your favourite big server with no game?

I've always been fond of Misa. I think she has some game though. Not top 20 game, but she should be a consistent top 30/40 player...but maybe not.

Re: Who's your favourite big server with no game?

I love how you aknowledge that Vaidisova is only a server with no game!

That's what I'm trying to explain to her fans for years!
finally a fan of her who is not biased

Her win over Chakvetadze was one of the best matches at Wimbledon in recent years. Aside from that I haven't been that impressed with her, but for at least one match, she played perfect tennis.

Definite grass-court specialist though.

Re: Who's your favourite big server with no game?

It promises to be a great thread judging from the opening posts. The tenor of Corswandt's remarks seems to be in direct response to Vaidišová's yesterday's performance. My consolations to him...

Re: Who's your favourite big server with no game?

Vaidisova without a doubt.
misa is next.

Stosur is not a serve only. You better need to check her stats. she got 22 double titles.(2 slams + 2 wta year ending champonships ) She is like max mirnyi of wta tour, her volleying is pretty solid. Frankly speaking she is not a single's specialist. period.
