who has the best serve and why
venus and serena
Perfect combination of placement and power. Serena's a close second though. Venus and Sharapova have the best first serves, but their seconds can be a total nightmare. Kuznetsova's another excellent server, but not quite up there with the others.
It is a tough call between Jankovic and Dementieva
I take it you are being sarcastic if only these two have Williams sisters serve they would have several slams under their belts already.
Serena. Venus has a poor second serve.
Venus, when she's on, can really hit some bombs and dominate on her serve. But, her serve can also break down a little bit.
Serena has much better technique, is more consistent, and has a better second serve.
dementieva IMO has the greatest serve in the women's game. she has great tecnique and it never lets her down
I agree with this 100% and when she gets her act together Nicole Vaidisova will have be one to be mentioned.
Exactly, and that is why they both get the honorable mention on this thread.
Serena has a cannon first serve and when she is on and focused...her second serve is pinpoint. as much as I dislike her her serving really is top notch....davenport in her prime was a good server...now her serve seems a little wishy washy in terms of accuracy. Sharapova has a cannon first serve...but her second serve is awful. the only other player who as times has good serving is henin...but her serving...especially this year...is subject to streaks...very bad ones
she lands a lot of her serves...but because they are so weak they are so easy to attack...not what you want in a serve...least not in my opinion
Serena 1st, Ivanovic 2nd
Serena for first and second serve. She racks up the aces on her first serve and gets a lot of unreturnables, plus her second serve is absolutely loaded with spin and extremely difficult to attack. She's one of the few women who can hit a kick serve.
Not sure it matters... None of them hold serve consistently...
Dementieva, yes her serve is waaaaaaaaay too good for the womens tour. Her first serve is comparable to Stich' and Sampras' when these guys were on. Her second serve reminds me of Sampras', but with a little more power, accuracy and more consistent.
But the queen of all serving was probably the retired Ana kournikova. Sublime technique on both first and second serves with record breaking speed.
I'd have to say Serena or Davenport. They both have great first serves with a good combination of power and placement, and good second serves that are also well placed. If I had to pick one it would be Serena.
Sampras has nothing on this second serve.
Check this out lol
