Sampras, Roddick, Karlovic or somebody else?

I would think it has to be Sampras, but couldn't find out for sure on a google search.

I bet it was Goran Ivanisevic. But he had a lot of DF's too.

I bet Fed is up there on the list, he gets a LOT of 2nd serve aces, especially slice down the T on the ad side.

big servers usually have a high rate of 2nd serve ace. I would say Sampras, Goran.

Probably a lefty... for the slice serve out wide on the ad court, or down the t on the deuce court.

Fed's got a lot of 2nd serve aces, too.

Ivanisevic no doubt, but he has a lot of double faults as well. Sampras also has many second serve aces especially on crucial points with less double faults rate.

Ljubicic for number1

Scud would have been up there on a match by match basis, basically served two first serves a lot of the time.

Sampras had the greatest second serve of all time, I'd bet it was him.

05-22-2009, 06:35 AM
I must say Ivanisevic.

05-22-2009, 11:38 AM
Goran Ivanisevic!

Lately Fed has been serving some aces on his 2nd serve.

Quite a rare shot though.

Doesn't answer the question but these stats for the past year yield some insight...

Andy Roddick: Service Record Year-to-Date
333 Aces (total)
040 Double Faults
70% 1st Serve
78% 1st Serve Points Won
56% 2nd Serve Points Won

Roger Federer: Service Record Year-to-Date
218 Aces (total)
067 Double Faults
60% 1st Serve
77% 1st Serve Points Won
56% 2nd Serve Points Won

I'd go with Sampras. Possibly Ivanisevic, but he went for more on his 2nd serves than Sampras did.
