I would say maria but the way Venus punished that thing inside the baseline at Wim 05 showed me it still needs more time to develop into a slighty faster serve. Davenport/Serena/Venus(when shes actually hitting good second serves) can lay claim to that title.

Lindsay/Maria/Nadia tie.

Dinara shouldn't be in the list.

Didn't she record the fastest serve at the Australian Open in '05?

Not being rude, but just because you have the fastest, doesn't mean it is the best. And I have to defend Dinara Safina. I was impressed with her serve and overall play against Hinis in the Pacific Life Open. Her serve is a tad bit inconsistant, but when she gets that bad boy under control, players are not going to want to see her on the other side of the net.

That's what I was getting at. Her kick serve is one of the best.

I wasn't saying that speed is the main factor, but a male player (Ivanisevic?) once commented that Venus doesn't know where her serve is heading half the time- obviously you included her because she has a fast serve

Sampras said that.

And its kinda true. Venus doesn't really place her serve well at all.

She used to. Back in 2001 it was kinda scary. Watch her 2001 Wimbledon matches. She hardly lost points.

i don't get why everyone thinks maria has the best serve. i hate watching it

am i just weird in thinking that justine's is good. sure it's not the most powerful but it is quite effective... i love watching serves from justine, serena

kinda like roddick/safin vs. federer

i think justine got a good serve too but its not much effective nowadays coz she just doesnt put enough 1st serves in consistently...Her 2nd serve is good too but its not spectacular plus its kinda predictable..She doesnt go wide on deuce side or down t on ad side at all on 2nd serve..But if the serves on its really effective for sure..Yeah serena serve is :worship: ..Really fluid serve motion..

Sampras said that when one of the journalists at wimbly compared his serve with Venus. :rolleyes:

Goran rules BTW! :rocker:
