Top 5.

This is because if you see him serve well, French Open against Federer. It was simply awesome on song! Even under pressure.

Re: How good is Delpo's serve?

Improving amazingly quickly. But still a bit patchy. At times this summer he has served gallons of aces and service winners in a row, and at other times he has missed first serve after first serve after first serve. But when his serve is on, it is untouchable as much as Roddick's if not more so, because of that height advantage.

His first serve is right up there and still getting better, his second serve is also very solid so very encouraging base for his game.

I totally agree with you..

+ for me his first serv is like a top 6 and second like a top 12

Re: How good is Delpo's serve?

For a guy his height his serve should be better. The signs are that his serve is improving so that is good news.

Re: How good is Delpo's serve?

His serve can be pretty good but I think that considering Del Potro's height it could be better.

Re: How good is Delpo's serve?

guy serves almost all his serves 130-138mph, its not bad...but he needs some accuracy to that, especially that slice serve but for sure its top 10 at least.

Re: How good is Delpo's serve?

His second serve is one of his biggest weapons, one of the best in the game. His first serve is inconsistent, but when he finds his rhythm is very reliable. But overall he has improved them a lot, so as his forehand and movement.

Re: How good is Delpo's serve?

ATP website is saying that his average 1st serve % is 61, its not that inconsistent
