I hav to admit ... Lindsays is very smooth back and forth, her arm fully extended ... a very nice service action

I think it has to be Alexandra. Her service action is great to watch. It seems so natural and easy, but it develops a lot of speed, it's very accurate, and hard to predict the direction.

Daniela too has a great serve action.

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

Best service action....

You need look no further than the one and only Miss Daniela Hantuchova. Perfection.

I never really thought about it, but Serena's seems to be efficient.
I also like Seles', Rubin's and Schnyder's.

Serena's serve is so smooth and precise. It is definitely modeled after Sampras' serve. It is also very well disguised in its delivery.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

It has got to be Lindsay Davenport's!!! Lindsay's serve is a touch of grace and finesse
