How good is your serve?
 
Simple question. How good do you reckon your serve is?

For my level as just an amateur, my serve is probs my biggest weapon. I can get a decent amount of power (for my size) & placement, However it is a little inconsistent. When my first serve is firing, the people i play find it impossible to break me. When it's not firing, then my serve gets broken a lot more.

Being a S&V player though, my serve is important, so it's something i have always worked on

My serve is SOOOO slow but I usually place it well. However, it takes my serve like almost half a set to warm up so I usually lose the first set of a match...unless I am having a REALLY good day on my serve. Definitely the weakest and most inconsistent part of my game though.

My first serve used to be pretty good. I was getting good compliments every single week from my instructor. Once I stopped lessons because it was draining my bank account, my serve went crappy as expected. I can hit some nice flat down the T serves on the deuce side, but they aren't fast, and a lot of the times land too central in the service box.

My serve is lightning fast.

My serve is doing me more harm than good. I got double faults a lot. It's the weakest point of my game and I am working on it.

I can hit with speed and go for accuracy, if things are well.

My serve definitely improved since I was younger, but it is still inconsistent.

My serve is great when it's consistent. When it's inconsistent it's abysmal. My second serve is alright, it's improving as I'm gaining more confidence in it, but it can still be a bit of a puffball when I don't have the confidence in it.

I can hit it hard (180 kmh +) but not with too much placement to be honest, in a match I'll normally get a lot of unreturned serves but 1-2 aces at most

I serve like a pro.

On a normal day, like Martina Hingis but on a GOOD day like Sara Errani.

Hingis didn't hit 86 km/h second serves and I've never seen Errani hit a 170+ km/h first serve.

My 1st serve is good but 1st serve persantage is about 30-40%. 2nd serve is weak and I have a lot og double fault 7-12 per match:o

I would compare mine to Azarenka, but i usually put tospin on it, flat, or rarely slice. Interestingly is not easily attacked, but many double faults. My motion changes a lot. It used to look like Hingis's,Safina and then Venus.

Re: How good is your serve?
 
Mine is a bit like Sharapova pre-2013, more consistent with some good speed on good days, whilst vulnerable and abysmal on bad days where i tend to double fault a lot.
