Cilic on list :arg: hahha
But, nvm... Karlovic has best serve, but Ljubo's serve is really close. He has big serves when he needs them! As an example, he hit in dubai 224 km/h, same speed in IW more times.
So, Ljubo and Karlovic.

But yeah Fed's serve is surely better than all of the guys in the poll, except for Karlovic, Isner and Roddick.

I based my options to the aces, 1st points won and service games won statistics and Federer isn't in the top 7 of any of them. There's an option called "others" fyi.

Re: Who has the best serve among the current active players?

When did Fed retire?

Anyway, In my opinion it's Roddick. He doesn't have the height advantage of Karlovic or Isner yet he's perfected his serve. First serve is very fast with good disguise and his second serve is probably the best on tour now too.

Re: Who has the best serve among the current active players?

Karlovic, no one 's close to him. With this one-shot only, he won approximately 92% of his serving game Just wonder is there any player who plays more tiebreak than him?

Term "Serve" also includes the second one. Which means that generally only Karlovich is better than Federer.
btw it doesn't look serious to vote for Federer by using "others" option.

Q. Do you feel you can get back to a position of domination in tennis?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I do think that. That's why I'm here.

Re: Who has the best serve among the current active players?

Are you serious? How someone can vote for Karlovic? I mean, Roddick has the best serve by far.. the basis for a good serve is the power out of the legs (German word: 'Schnellkraft' ), body-stretching and a fast arm... I mean Karlovic is just... big

Re: Who has the best serve among the current active players?

What a fail, this tread is.

Fedmug, with serve as the only working shot, outplayed Duck in that Wimb final.

Serve alone saved him a great amount of important matches, the amount Duck, dr. Ivo and all the other mugs from the poll could only dream of.

Karlovic's serve not suits to the term best. Others could not be taken into consideration.

...and the winner iiiiiiiis....... Roger Federer.
