    Why are Nadal, Murray and Agassi in the poll, but not Ivanisevic?

    And Federer is also missing from the poll.

    I'd also say Sampras.

  7. Being a Fed-fan, im tired of including Fed into polls since there is walways some bashing going on. He should be in it though

  8. Dont agree, his serve is over-rated, it was good, but not that good.

    I agree he is the best, since he almost hit it as hard as his first in Wimbledon 2003.

    Lots of MIP-players (Missing In Poll):
    Tanner
    Del Potro
    Ivanisivic
    Noah
    McEnroe
    Federer
    Phillippoussis
    Dent (before the big injury, old service motion)
    Lendl

    But given the options and the purpose I would go with Sampras followed Edberg. and then Becker.

    It's cool, man. Just when I read your poll about second serves the guys mentioned weren't the first names that came up.

    There's no doubt in my mind that Pete had the best 2nd serve in history.

    Roddick has a much better second serve than Federer.

    Not really...Pete BY FAR had the best 2nd serve ever. To me, its one of the 10 best shots in the history of the sport, and wasn't as good as his first serve.

    No one else comes close -- Pete not only had the best 2nd serve ever, but was also the most clutch 2nd server in history.

    No contest easy answer.

    Pistol Pete my a country mile. So far ahead take 5mph off his 2nd serve and its still the best.

    It has to be Sampras, with Roddick coming a close second.

    Murray's 67 mph second serves are deadly so it has to be him.

    Only kidding - it's Pete.

    The correct answer is there..sampras..so who cares who is missing. Please find me a guy who had a second serve as lethal as his.

    I have to agree. Roddick's second serve is quite outstanding. He just needs to compromise on it moree..

    Pete Sampras.

    Isner's 2nd serve is great though, not all time great, but the best in the game right now, IMO
