Serena played by "best of three" rules but still finished into TOP10 :eek:


Because in ATP tennis serve is way bigger advantage number of breaks in ATP "best of five" and WTA "best of three" matches is pretty equal, so here is overall
BREAK POINTS WON AO/10 list:
1. R.Federer - 39
2. J.Henin - 36
3. A.Murray - 35
4. N.Djokovic - 34

^^ ATP players can actually serve, so they don't get broken as often.

Serena making the overall TOP 10 on Aces though. :eek:

8. A.Szavay - 75 %
9. S.Bammer - 75 %
10. Y.Meusburger - 75 %

This stat only shows those who spin in their serve for a high % of first serves. The % of points won on 1st serve is a much better stat, well in terms of what this thread was geared toward anyway.

Justine @ #2 is kinda amazing..But I don't think it shows the conversion rate...I don't think it'll be pretty.


Serena winning 1st serves % is really impressive :worship:

Parmentier :eek: But she only played 1 match, vs Baltacha. Pauline has a strong first serve and Bally's one of the worst returners so I guess it's not that surprising actually.

Interesting Sanchez is so high up. Shows S&V can still be very effective.

Exactly. Though it isn't just the S&V style which gets her the high % of points won after getting her first serve in. She also has a pretty decent serve in itself. She can hit a variety of different serves, making it quite hard to read. As well as the fact that it's a left handed serve, which most players don't see that often. So anyone who served like that would able to win a lot of free points but also easily put away the resulting weak return (with a quick volley in Maria Jose's case) to win the point.

Part of the reason why Serena's no of aces is double Nadia's is also due to the fact she played 2 more matches (besides being the best server in the womens' game). Nevertheless it's an astonishing feat!

It's important to note that both Serena and Justine played 7 matches, and both Nadia and Venus played 5. Sam had 4 and Alisa had 3, so placing high on this ladder is a very good sign for how well they've been serving.

i disagree on the "number of matches" thing. serena has at times led the race after losing in the quarters of a slam. and by the end of the tournament she still be at number 1 in aces. they are good servers tho.

Well, it's interesting as last year there was a bit of a debate when Nadia claimed she had the 3rd best serve on the tour and we all wondered where she got that stat from.

She might have closed the gap with Serena if she'd played a few more matches, but Serena's serving is pretty amazing. Actually, if you remove Serena from the list, Nadia's is pretty impressive. Maybe she was selling herself short when she said she was #3.

Anyway, interesting stuff.

I'm sure if Serena got disposed during the quarters, she will still lead the ladder.

I was only referring to the huge gap between her and Nadia helped by her playing more matches.

how many slams did she win with that third best serve of hers.
Besides good serving is not just about aces. Service winners or bomb body serves that set up easy put aways are just as effective.

After the QF's Serena already had 41 aces, so it wouldn't have mattered. Her serve is just AMAZING. Best weapon on the tour and the greatest weapon since Graf's forehand for sure.
