I think its between Sharapova and Petrova. Sharapova is great at holding service. While Petrova has a bigger serve, and more 1st service variety. Sharapova definitely has the better 2nd serve. Kuznetsova serve comes in 3rd, only because it is easy to read.

Sharapova. Those other players get broken way more than her.

What about Bychkova. She probably has the most powerful of all russian players.

Sharapova,more variety.She can hit an ace where she wants.

Petrova is more about power but not really about variety.

Sharapova has the pacier serve off both 1st and second deliveries. Picks her spots well. I do love Sveta's more though, less predictable with the abrieviated action and she has such a wonderful kick second serve.

I'd say sharapova or Sveta, both different style of servers but effective nonetheless.

:spit: of course Petrova has much pacier serves than sharpy!! She cango above 190 kmph at times!! Plusshe has much better placement than Sharpy!! Having better serve and getting broken moreare two separate issues!!You dont hold serves just using your serves!! If you just compare serves, Nadia has muchhh bigger serve(1st serve atleast)..

Petrova has the best serve technically.
Smooth natural action, high toss and a lovely whiplash crack on contact. :drool:

Unfortunately it's not nearly as consistent as Sharapova's is.

Nadia may get more MPH's on her serve, but Maria places it much better, IMO.

Maria can also rely on it much more when she's in trouble or under pressure.

Wimbledon + US Open = GREAT serve

Yeah, I agree.

Nadia is maybe more powerful but she is not as consistent as Maria is.

When Maria is in trouble, or under pressure, she can serve some great 2nd as she wants.

I'd say Petrova.. her game revolves around her serve..

Masha by far, her serve is so reliable and sets up the points so well, now only does she have the p[ower but she varies its pace, direction and spin really well, its one of the best serves out there right now, if not the best and when it coe to pressure & tight situations no one serves better than her

Mina Vagante
Jan 5th, 2007, 08:24 PM
i wouldnt sa its the best out there but its up there, i think her 2nd serve is probably the best, but her 1st serve is not as good as venus's/serena's/davenport's

Sharapova. She's clutch. It's uncanny how she can uncork those big serves either down the T or out wide when she needs them. She's not only the best Russinan server...she's the best period.

Dementieva :devil:

Petrova has a great technique to it and really give it a clean crack when it hits.

I'd say her's in the better.

Sharapova.

Bovina's is really good too, hopefully she can get it together.

Sharapova for sure. Not even close really. Petrova would definitely be next.

I vote for Nadia, her strenght and speed of serve is incredible ;)

Maria for the fact she is a great pressure server it is there when she needs it Nadia may hit it harder but it can go off

Petrova has the most power probably, but Sharapova takes care of her's best and uses variety best.

Petrova has the best serve out if these
Sharapovas serve is pretty much overrated IMO

Sharapova because when down BP's and stuff she comes up with super serves
