I was just thinking about the longest serving actions of the girls...Novotna I reckon has the highest ball toss of all time, and Pierce certainly had the LONGEST serving "action" which frequently involved fiddling with her hair and eyes!

As for the ball toss i think Bammer and Serra-Zanetti are good examples...

Not forgetting Graf had a high ball toss as well.

Steffi Graf had a pretty high toss, but she timed it so well that it didn't
give her too much trouble. But on the men's side, definately Hrbaty!

If I remember correctly, Peng Shuai has (or at least had) a high ball toss.

Lucie Safarova has a really low ball toss. Its only in the air for like a tenth of a second before she hits it :lol:

Seems pretty effective though :shrug:

Ivan Lendl on the men's side had a ridiculously high ball toss. I used to think that he faulted now and then because he lost the ball in the air.

I haven't seen enough WTA players to know, but dating myself and for you old timers, I remember Roscoe Tanner had a very low toss (I mean he hit the ball as soon as it leaves his hand) left handed serve that was the most powerful in his era of tennis. He had many aces, but inconsistent ground strokes killed him. :rolleyes:

Ivan Lendl, but that's only because he was taller than her.
