I did this because because of the mightyness of the WS, serve of other players (good) aren't really discussed.

This thread is for the servers after Vee and Ree!

Sveta and Venus

Well, I don't think Sveta can be included, at least at this point. She isn't consistent enough, and obviously doens't have much belief right now, same with Nadia...oh, Nadia :sad:

Besides Serena and Venus, Brenda(yes, still), Masha(when her shoulder is ok), and of course, ANA...it's a fantastic shot for her. I love Dani's serve too.

If we're excluding Serena, who is by far the best server then I would say Lindsay, followed by Maria (when not having shoulder problems, which is very often these days!)

Molik, (Old Molik), Petrova, Vaidisova, Stosur

I have always loved Lindsay's serve. She had patches of brilliance during this season.

The only one that comes to my mind is Dementieva, coz the serves of the other players are soooo predictable...

Obviously Serena.

But Venus... it's a weapon but imo it's not consistent enough to be considered up on par w/ Serena. And her 2nd is a liability at times. I think there are servers who maybe can't serve as big as Venus but who are more consistent w/ it and have a better 2nd serve.

Vaidisova, Stosur, Sharapova, Ivanovic, Krajicek, Erakovic. there aren't that many good servers on tour.

The WS and Maria. I mean , when Maria's serve it's on , she's fire. The thing is that she has not been able to show us that thanks to her shoulder but we can look to the Aussie earlier this year where we could see that Maria and Serena were the best servers.

Vaidisova, Stosur, Sharapova, Ivanovic, Krajicek, Erakovic. there aren't that many good servers on tour.

I would add Patty Schnyder to the list. She's producing amazing angles with this leftie serve and hitting many aces.

Also when Petrova is on, she's having a great serve. The problem with her is, she's very seldom on lately...

Oh and Akgul should be mentioned too!

Agreed. Patty can flatten it out and hit it pretty hard, too.

Slutati

Well, Slutati is obviously the best...

The first post is STUPID if you are asking about the BEST servers on tour you have to say the Williams Sisters you CANNOT exclude them. Kuznetsova is a ONE SLAM WONDER and a total headcase, Davenport is a good server but she's finished she's not a contender anymore. Sharapova has a decent serve when it is on. Ivanovic is a good server as well and of course Petrova and Viadasova but that's it.

Yea.. Serena is in another league. Her serve still is miles ahead of the rest.

Other than the WS, Davenport, Ivanovic, Sharapova, and at times, Petrova, Molik(well) and you can throw Stosur and Safina in there too.

Aug 13th, 2008, 05:04 AM
Serena, Venus, Davenport, old Sharapova, Petrova, maybe new Safina

Well, Slutati is obviously the best...

at being a skank. :p Love you Marko. :hug:

Anywho... Last night when I was watching the doubles match between WS vs. Czechs (Benesova/Vaidisova) I saw that Nicole actually has a really strong serve. I was very impressed because the Czech team was held together by Iveta's good doubles play and Nicole's serve.

But yeah best servers, Serena, Venus when it's on, although the second serve is :help:, Sharapova when she's on, Davenport, Safina.

Miss Congeniality Award will go to Elena Dementieva for improving her serve this year from what I've seen. Congrats Lena! :aparty:http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg289/cpbunch/smiley/confetti.gif

I've always liked Lindsay's serve

and Molik's back in the day. She has a lovely service action, similar to Mark Philippoussis (had to google the spelling :lol: and it still looks wrong)

I think these accounts are owned by the same person, or they live in the same household.

Tatiana's serve is AMAZE.

Stosur's serve is really nice, but the only time i have seen it was against the WS and she had some pretty bad second serves.
