With the big servers paradise Wimbledon starting who has the best serve? The legendary Pete Sampras was the most succesful at wimbledon because of his giant weapon, so who else can say they serve on par or better than sampras?

I don think Sampras had the GOAT serve. He was good because of his other weapons.

My vote is Ivo.

Probobly Sampras had a very above average serve and the volleys, and the combo's between his half volleys, forehands, and serve made him great.

Cilic, Ralph, Nolito are definately not worth being included there.

Put in there rather some dudes liek Krajicek.

My vote is: Ivanisevic.

Goran Ivanisevic, especially if we're talking about first serves.

This poll again ?

The answer is Karlovic. He's the GOAT of 1st serve.

The answer is Karlovic. He's the GOAT of 1st serve.

Goran's is better, much harder to read and has more variety.

Sorry, but Ivo serve harder, faster. Goran I believe has lower 1st serve %.

Goran may have better disguise, but his serve doesn't stay shoulder high as Ivo, and Ivo has better wide out angle(due to his height).

Pistol Pete for me.....why is Nadal even on this poll. I mean,hes good and all, but his serve is pretty mediocre.

Gee, i wonder what we will remember karlovic as..... big man karlo?

my vote goes for goran. i know sampras is maybe the best 1st, 2nd serve & following shots combo ever... but just for the pure serve it is goran for me.
ivo's serve jumps higher, but that's it... anyway, i agree that it is one of the best ever.

would include to this list (instead of nadal, djokovic,...) philippoussis, krajicek, becker, stich, rusedski, johasson,...

Sorry, but Noel's is better. He is the son of God.

1st serve: Ivanisevic

2nd serve: Sampras

Best overall (package/comination od 1st and 2nd) is Sampras.







Why are Nadal and Djokovic there but guys like Krajicek/Kramer/Rusedski/Arthurs not in the poll?

Ivo. It's his entire game, and he has done some things on tour.

Goran's was the greatest of all-time until Ivo came around.

Pete had the most consistent serve, but if you give Goran Pete's volleying ability, he'd get broken twice a year.
