View Full Version : Is Davenport's server under-rated?

It seems like most players are having trouble winning points on her sever...yet most people talk more about Molik's, Petrova's or Serena's serve.

I think everyone talks about how underrated it is, so lots of people rate it... so therefore it's NOT underrated! (if that makes sense ;))

i think you're hearing a lot morew about the others right now because they're young and new. lindsay is every bit a great server and very difficult to break.

Her serve is certainly not to be sneezed at!

I don't think it's overrated. It does get less attention than Serena's or Alicia's, but people still know it's one of the best.

lindsay's serve is so fluid. i love watching her serve, especially down the middle.

I think it's because she lacks huge speed like Molik or Serena... Lindsay hits it consistantly hard [1st and 2nd] and can place well.

I think her serve has been fairly rated. I have never heard ppl badmouth her serve and everybody who talks about her serve only says nice things about it. And her serve is definitely one of the most difficult ones to return as her height helps it with angles and placement.

It is definatly top 5 in my book

over the last few years she has slowed her serve down alot.....she used to hit it well into the 115mph but its all about placement now.

the foot lift....the ball toss..the smile...then she whacks it

its all about placement now.

EXACTLY :worship:

If she didn't do that step thing (which is mostly done by only short people) then she'd get about 30% more power.

I love it wen she smiles just after the ball toss, its so cute! :hearts:

Lindsay has one of the most consistent and solid serves on tour. It may not be the fastest, but I think it's the best placed.

Her second serve is very good also.

i think she has the BEST serve on tour. she has an unusual serve as well!!! the way she holds teh ball under her racket before she serves....and the smile!!! ha ha love it!

Serve is good....consistent and places it well. Still give Serena at her best the edge over her because Serena got the power and the placement, but Lindsay's good too.

it's an unfuckingbelievably awesome serve :)
