As I was looking at the Ace leaderboard I knew it was 'skewed', of course players that play more own services serve more aces. So players that had long difficult matches (like Misa Krajicek or Patty Schnyder) get the 'advantage' on the Ace leaderboard.
So I got the player statistics, got the ace leaderboard top 20, and fiddled it a bit to get the following list (halfway through 4th round matches):
Position Name Aces # of first serves Ace percentage

1 A.Mauresmo 23 153 15,03%
2 S.Williams 33 259 12,74%
3 S.Stosur 20 180 11,11%
4 N.Vaidisova 18 169 10,65%
5 M.Krajicek 36 367 9,81%
6 A.Ivanovic 18 184 9,78%
7 A.Molik 13 134 9,70%
8 A.Szavay 11 127 8,66%
9 D.Hantuchova 26 317 8,20%
10 N.Petrova 13 164 7,93%
11 J.Henin 14 183 7,65%
12 V.Williams 21 284 7,39%
13 M.Hingis 14 225 6,22%
14 A.Chakvetadze 16 262 6,11%
15 S.Kuznetsova 14 231 6,06%
16 D.Safina 9 165 5,45%
17 M.Santangelo 11 211 5,21%
18 P.Schnyder 19 374 5,08%
19 L.Safarova 14 286 4,90%

This of course makes more sense. Amelie/Serena leading the pack. Misa still a good 5th place. Nicole and Ana are high up there as well. Also Patty dropping down the list.
The list does not include players that had 8 aces or less so far.

You had a lot of time on your hands, thankfully, because this is a great stat to have. People misread stats all the time.

Amelie served enough aces in her 4R match, but it didn't help her... Nicole even went down in this ranking producing only 1 Ace throughout the match.
