Which Second Serve is better?

Which one do you think is better?
The high stakes and high double fault prone Maria Sharapova?
or
The super slow and attackable, yet undeniabley consistent Aga Radwanska?
Which is better?

Aga won 10% more 2nd serve points than Maria in 2011

Aga = 49.7%
Maria = 40.0%

Neither.

I'd say Masha, but only on a theoretical sense... because at least on a pressure point, the outcome is still sort of in her hands if she can manage to not double fault and put in a good second serve. With Aga.... the point is literally at the opponent's mercy.

Jeez, you're really that desperate to find something to make you feel better about Aga?

Re: Which Second Serve is better?

I hate Maria's second serve, but I would take it over a puffball any day. Puffball and Sharapova just don't go together

Puff. It gives me more of a chance to stay in the point, just getting the ball over.

Re: Which Second Serve is better?

Maria obviously..... Because when it goes in, its almost a first serve, and the oppoonent cant attack...

Aga serve just asking for a huge return from the opponent!!!

My point is that Maria has such high amounts of DF's meaning she has a very inconsistent serve.
