Ok, this one is reasonable, since we are talking about 1hander vs big serves.
...what do you see?
See any 1 handers in the top 10?
Flavio who has little data against big servers, right?
Anyone I'm missing?
Even this stat can be misleading, but I guess the best we have.

I looked at the better ones at the top like DJ and Ferrer and their % of pts won
against big servers like Fed and Delpo were 10-20% higher than Youzhny's at #20.
Now 10% may not sound like much, but that was nearly twice as good in many
cases. Like where Youzhny's 12% against Fed vs DJ's 22-24% against Fed.
Just evidence though, not proof of course.
