Big servers from Spain?

The Spaniards have had a lot of players over the years, but I can't recall many big servers.

Any names that should be mentioned here, and if not, any explanation as to why the Spaniards aren't coming up with big servers? They definitely have had a lot of hard hitters.

Re: Big servers from Spain?

Hingis' lover, Julian Alonso was a big server albeit hadn't been serving many aces. In 1998 he had the fourth fastest service in the ATP history (225 km/h) behind Rusedski, Philippoussis and Rosset but ahead of Krajicek and Ivanisevic

Re: Big servers from Spain?

Lopez, Verdasco, Navarro probably serve the best from Spanish active players.

Re: Big servers from Spain?

Lopez has the best serve I think.

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4

Lopez, for sure. Almagro and Verdasco also have good serves.

Re: Big servers from Spain?

Feli, Almagro have very reliable and fluid motion serves. Verdasco's can either be a bomb or a shitty puff in the middle of the net (kind of like Murray, though more exaggerated). From the past, Moya used to have a pretty good serve as well as Corretja.

Granollers can serve a lot of aces at times. Not a very big serve though.
