is sharapova's serve underrated?

everyone here all the time seems to talk about how sharapova's serve is so bad now and puts her at a heavy disadvantage when she faces serena (lol).

so I was checking out the current WTA Match Stat leaders here: https://wta-playerzone.com/matchfacts1.aspx

and it seems sharapova has some pretty good service stats:

ACES
1. Serena Wiiams - 299
2. Sabine Lisicki - 230
3. Maria Sharapova - 176
4. Kirsten Flipkens - 160
5. Petra Kvitova - 154
...
47. Victoria Azarenka - 48

1ST SERVICE POINTS WON

1. Serena Williams - 76%
2. Maria Sharapova - 72%
3. Marina Erakovic - 71%
4. Kaia Kanepi - 70%
5. Sabine Lisicki - 70%
...
18. Victoria Azarenka - 66%

SERVICE GAMES WON

1. Serena Williams - 86%
2. Maria Sharapova - 79%
3. Madison Keys - 75%
4. Maria Kirilenko - 75%
5. Sabine Lisicki - 75%
...
9. Victoria Azarenka - 71%

i included azarenka for comparisons sake.

so do you think sharapova's serve is underrated?
