Sveta has a good one, very effective on clay. Molik still has a great kick serve, it was part of what made her succesful before her injuries/sickness.

Yeah she did, but it kind of fell apart with her absence and in 2004-2005 Molik had the best kick serve and she still had it kind of at RG this year. Perhaps Stosur has the best kick serve now.

No one has ever had a better kick serve than Serena in 2002. It was outstanding.

champion88
Jun 9th, 2006, 10:47 AM
Yeh Serena's kick serve was very impressive back in 02 but she has said herself that since her injuries, she can get as much knee bend on the serves and so she can't be as powerful or get as much kick, which is a real shame :(

alfajeffster
Jun 9th, 2006, 12:24 PM
Billie Jean King has a wicked kick serve, and moves it around the box and into the body with good placement as well. Once in a while, she even serves up a kick first serve to take her opponent (who's expecting pace) by surprise. Who knew tennis could be such a thinking woman's sport?

Venus' serve is not really a kick serve...it moves through the court rather than at an angle.

Serena, hands down. Why isn't she at the top of the list? :confused:

because the last time people have seen her play, her second serves were as slow as hingis' :confused: her kick serve was devestating in 2002 and 2003, but has not been among the best since then, so why bring up 3 year old artifacts...

same with molik, her kick serve was great over a year ago, but it's lost some pop since then.

among top players, kuznetsova and schnyder have great kick serves. sharapova and vaidisova too.

Excuse me, but the thread starter didn't specify whether now or a century ago. Out of all the kick serves I've seen in my life, Serena had the best. She's injured now and it remains to be seen whether she's still got it. Grow up. :rolleyes:

Poll didnt say currently or now.
Your argument is assinine. its like saying because Steffi or Navartilova or Evert no longer play you cant consider them as top players!

How is Serena not even in the poll? The question isn't who has served the best kicker this year? It's who has the best kick serve? PERIOD! Hands DOWN it's Serena. She killed Hingis with it. Made Davenport look silly with it. She even BEAT UP on the best mover (Venus, btw) with her kickers. Yeah, she's injured and she's having problems right now, but if she's gets her weight down and gets more strength in her knees, she could go down in history as one of the most DOMINATING SERVERS EVER! She really posesses all of the weapons. Great flat serve, lots of aces, keeps the DF (generally) low, beautiful slice, great kicker, and the best one...AWESOME disguise!

Same as topspin serve... in laymans terms, you sort of chuck it behind your head, and slice up on the ball, and you get large clearance over the net, and it bounces violently off the surface.

Same principle as hitting a heavy topspun groundstroke... but you can get a lot more work on the serve

Bovina can hit all sorts of serves, she can hit a nice kick serve too. In toronto(?) 2003 Henin almost had to smash to return those serves cos they were flying over her head lol

Molik, Pierce have big kick serves but they are pretty big themselves. Patty Schnyder has the best one if you take in consideration that she's 1,68m
