Elena serving to take the first set, she gets a little tight - and a contender for worst serve ever

I can post this as its all in the past now.

The dim, distant past of the Auckland final, January 2009. Two and half weeks later she was favorite to win the Australian open.

Pay attention ball boy!

The intention of the thread is to highlight bad serves during a match, not bad serve motions (in this case Voracova and Serra Zanetti would easily win) :lol:

I was watching this match, just to the right of the group that was videoing ;) Schnyder's entourage (with husband leading, naturally) mocked it throughout. This is why the Italians cheer so loudly when she won the point.

When looking at that one I stumbled across this beautiful action from the Gay Games or whatever:

For a top player, Sabatini's serve was grotesque! I mean, I always wondered why her second AND first serves were not returned as winners! So soft! Her groundies were a different matter altogether.

And how come there's no mention of the fabulous Anna Kournikova?

Wasn't there a Kournikova moment where she literally skied the ball on a second serve and everyone started laughing?

Does anyone remember Venus completely shanking a serve against Hingis at the USO in '99.

She was just about to cramp(:lol: ), but it was still pretty amazing:drool::lol:

Pam Shriver hit an even worse second serve on match point against Anke Huber at the 96 Wimbledon... she was so embarassed after that one!

I think the Hingis-serve is extremly week too! Dementieva can serve quite well on a good day but Hingis couldn't do anything with her serve and the technique was so awful (probably still is). ;-)

I did mean bad serves due the match situation, rather than just a hopeless service motion. Though it was funny to see Ilinca Stoica.

Serving problems due to choking problems.

I think Hantuchova wins so far - it bounced over the net!

:eek: :rolleyes: :lol: :sad:

I was following her junior results this year and thought she was pretty impressive but after seeing that serve I'm not so sure. :lol:

Oh I love so many of these players :hearts:. Not the ones with ugly serves, but the ones who get all nervous... after the horrible miss you just want to :hug: them. Poor Virginie in the point above, I think the wind helped to make that happen, she was trying to pull out of the serve.

But what about Dina (bless her socks) and her doublefaulting against Sabine L at Wimby? One of those DFs went to the far corner of the other box...

Here it is, I wish there was a better quality version, but at least this is from a widescreen version so you can fully appreciate just how far it is from Sabine.

LMAO that's the worst one so far. She served into the ad court. :lol:

At least Hantuchova was serving towards the right court.
