Both these girls have decent first serves, but their second serves are pitiful, useless, and laughable.

So whose is worse?

it is not just the lack of pace of dementieva's that bothers me but the huge # of double faults. :eek:

Dementieva's is about 40MPH its actually got worse through the year, not better.

But in a whay it can be difficult to return because its very slow, so you have to get up to it, plus she slaps a tonne of spin on it, which actually means in changes direction when it hits the ground.

Worst 2nd serves I have ever seen are Dementieva and Venus Williams.

No the worse serve I have ever seen is that player who beat Justine in last years french open First round. I mean her 1st serve was bad it was like Elenas second serve

Venus' is not the greatest, but it definitely is far from the worst. I guess you never heard of Jennifer Capriati. Venus hits good second serves most of the time.

In the voting for who has the worst second serve Dementieva is leading Myskina 38 to 5! :eek: And you could have included the name of Anna Kournikova in this poll, too.

It stands out because the rest of her game is so spectacular, but others second serves are bad and no one seems to notice.

dementieva's 1st serva is just as bad so i wont say anything. the worst 2nd serve goes to venus. for someone with that first serve and that height and that power, she hits the 2nd ball into the net WAY too much.

Surely a Kournikova fan can't start threads accusing other players of weak second serves with a straight face? ;)

Anyway, Dementieva must take the crown. Myskina's is weak, for sure, but at least she can usually get it into the middle of the box - Dementieva's either creeps over the net at a painfully low trajectory or is shanked straight into the tape. But it's true, Kapros gets the award for worst first serve... Henin's loss at RG must have been doubly humiliating given that, if she had been fully fit, she could probably have overtaken Kapros' serve by walking to the net. It was that slow.
