I think its all about balance. I'll give it to Serena for now, let's see what the new faces bring to the court.

A decent poll :D

Serena and Lindsay from the obvious.

Molik and Petrova also.

I went with Stosur, in only the 2 matches of hers I've followed she uses that big serve well. Plus she won the most aces in Indian Wells (and went to what R3?) :worship:

i think its pertty obvious serena has the best serve, if you compare when everyone is serving at their best. who saw the semi final of the USO 2001 hingis v. Willaims? For those of you who watched the second set, you will know what i mean.

When it goes about serving it is Serena.......and then after a huge pause: everybody else. Anybody coming up with people whom they didn´t even watch playing :o

Clearly Serena has the best first & second serve combination, and I think most of the players would say so themselves. I have heard Lindsay (who also has a great serve when she's on) say that Serena's serve is the best ever in women's tennis.

Nadia Petrova :bowdown: and she's not even on the list :o

LOL@Kim, Lindsay and Capriati being on list :tape:

Serena, both her serves are just :eek: but both of Lindsay's serves are also greatly placed just not as hard but i still like hers better, lol

We´re comparing Serena and Nadia...if Nadia can´t hold against Elena D and Serena only loses her serve twice due to some slopiness, then the I think the choice is easily made.

No one was talking about Nadya vs Serena
this is about serves, u were the one who dragged Serena into this.


that never works though
just cos A beats B and B beats C doesnt mean A beats C as well.
C often has the better of A

it just happens alot.

Aight...your opinion. Think Nadia´s serve is better than Serena?! Got that right. Don´t think many people would agree with you though.

no one said the best serve, but the biggest

Nadia averages the highest.

Wouldn't Venus have the BIGGEST serve then TBE??

Venus biggest serve yes
but she doesnt average as the biggest.

Justine tops her too.

Knizzle
Apr 6th, 2004, 07:08 PM
Justine's average first serve is not higher than Venus'. I would doubt that Petrova's is either.

bandabou

Venus biggest serve yes

Please, please....has Justine ever hit 120 mph on her serves, while Venus AVERAGES 120+ mph on her first serves?! Stop living in denial...

for-sure
Apr 6th, 2004, 07:13 PM
Nadia has a really good serve.

TheBoiledEgg
Apr 6th, 2004, 07:14 PM
check stats from Wimbledon
Ave serves

Venus vs Nadya both averaged 107mph
Nadya's AVE 1st serve is often 110mph

http://championships.wimbledon.org/en_GB/bios/cmatch/ws/wtaw220.html


Justine's upped her serves since then.

IMO, nadia was serving better at the tournament than Serena, and of course Venus

Well at Wimbledon Serena had the fastest serve:120 mph and that was 7!! mph faster than Nadia´s fastest...and Venus had the second-fastest: 119 mph.

Serena's the best combo of speed, consistancy, placement & 2nd serve.

Venus just has the best speed, but 2nd serve is :o .

Justine's one is like Serena, only less consistant and lower speed peaks (yet about the same average speed), but she has the most remarkable hight-speed ratio.

Nadia's one is also great, but it fails at big matches (against Kim, Justine, Venus).

I'm not sure what the threadstarter meant regarding biggest, so I went with best. I think Serena has the best serve, bar none on the tour. However, if the threadstarter actually meant biggest serve, Venus has the biggest serve, bar none on the tour with the fastest recorded speed.

Belgium = Best
Apr 6th, 2004, 07:55 PM
Kim :D

Go Kim! ;)

So either way it is a Williams...

I think Venus has the biggest (as in fastest) serve. Not sure how fast Stosur serves, there isn't always a speed clock in all the courts.

Nadia Petrova has an impressive serve too, but last time I saw her playing, it didn't look to me like it was such a weapon in her game.

Probably Serena for best all around serve...

Magüi Serna is another player that gets MANY free points with her serve.

I was about to say so, Magüi has a pretty good serve, I guess being a lefty helps her a lot ;)
I'm not surprising of seeing Kim there, I think she won't serve the faster or better placed but everytime I've seen her, the serve is a great gun to get ready to kill the return with a forehand :o
I should go with Venus, Serena or Lindsay... can't choose :o

I don't care who has the best serve, I will always chose Kim. ;):D

Lindsay and Venus have the height adventage so they can put more pressure on their serves to the opponents. Serena's muscular, so she has powerful advatage.

Venus just has the best speed, but 2nd serve is :o .

Justine's one is like Serena, only less consistant and lower speed peaks (yet about the same average speed), but she has the most remarkable hight-speed ratio.

Nadia's one is also great, but it fails at big matches (against Kim, Justine, Venus).
Also Nadia's serve lacks varity. This is why she lost it to top players. Justine's serve has come a long way since this time last year but still lacks consistant. So I think at this moment of time Serena has the best serve in the woman's game.
