And there were also a few greta servers in the cc specialist ranks.I can mention Jaroslav Drobny, who also won Wimbledon and was considered one of the best lefties servers.Adriano Panatta,Victor Pecci,Yannick Noah and Andres Gomez were great servers and most of their career was based on clay.Lendl and Borg developed very good serves, and Guga Kuerten had a very good first ball too.

Australian Mervuyn Rose had a very good first ball, and his best results were on clay.Phil Dent reached the RG semifinals and was reputed for his ghood serve, although he was helepd by a very hard and deep forehand.John Alexander, while not exclusively a cc specialist, had pretty good results on clay, and so did Jose Luis Clerc and Ilie Nastase.Both had potent serves, when in their peak, although they had other shots to complement, specially a tremendous FH drive.I may think of others later on.But not all the greatest servers are fast courters.
