Some still are surprised to learn that good first serve is not flat - you need side and top spin to have consistency.
Although not listed above, arguably the top two servers of their recent eras, Sampras and Roddick, had the most spin on their first serves, compared to their contemporaries.


On the second serve, the biggest challenge is to have big spin and placement on both a kick and slice serve - only having one will let your opponent get his timing down to crush your second serve.
