Janowicz´s serve -how good it is?

So how big and good his serve really is?

I want to talk just about serve - biggest asset he has, biggest weapon any big server obviously has

I´ve been wondering about this since Wimbledon when i 1st saw him vs Gulbis, now in Paris, his numbers and serve looked impressive, but checking ATP page his ace-per match ratio isn´t so high, he is nowhere near Ivo, John or Milos here - ace-per match is misleading stats and i don´t like it, but it is faster to check matches and how many aces he hit - but in PAris he seems to be hitting more aces than usually. Ace-per match depends on surface + how many service games you serve

Now his serve - his 1st serve is massive - the speed he is serving is from ATP tour players only comparable to Raonic-only Milos is able to serve 220-235kph bombs regularly. He has great slice serve-at high speed and totally take you out wide. His kicker is great - he is even standing so that you can predict kick serve but it is jumping high.

2nd serve great, can go for pace, can use kicker and so on.

I can´t choose where i would rank his serve

In 2012 clearly best servers are Raonic and Isner - hard to choose, 3rd would be declining Karlovic

4th spot and lower are probably big servers like Querrey,Anderson,Muller

THis guy has the size like Anderson but his serve is clearly bigger, 10-20kph more, but Anderson has more aces probably per match

So what do you think, maybe to soon to tell, but where would you rank him among best servers on the tour

Re: Janowicz´s serve -how good it is?

I think it's safe to say he has the 99th best serve in the game

1. Isner/Raonic/Karlovic
2. Isner/Raonic/Karlovic
3. Isner/Raonic/Karlovic
4. Querrey/Janowicz/Servebotro/Serverer

I'm very indecisive.

Still think he's not as good as King Kenny, Raonic or Isner.

Re: Janowicz´s serve -how good it is?

So what do you think? Today he hit 242 kph vs Ferrer, his serve is huge, but where is his serve comparing to biggest servers in the game?

Re: Janowicz´s serve -how good it is?

First serve is top 8.

Second serve is a joke though.

Re: Janowicz´s serve -how good it is?

It is not that good, his slice is bad, yes bad, his kick could be better, Raonic's and Isner's are way better.
Most of all, his placement is really average. 2nd serve needs a lot of work too.

Sure he can hit the crap out of the ball, probably hardest server on tour bar Groth, but it takes more than that to have a great serve.

Re: Janowicz´s serve -how good it is?

His flat 1st serve is extremly good, but I think he could improve the 1st serve kick. His 2nd serve kick is phenomenal - fantastic high bounce without going for the risk.

It's definitely top6 out of best serves on tour. Worse than Isner/Karlovic/Raonic and similar in quality to Anderson/Querrey.

Re: Janowicz´s serve -how good it is?

Good serve but not the level of the good servers in the Ranking. (Isner, Raonic, Karlovic) but is good. The big thing of Janowicz they are the drop shots.

GRIGOR DIMITROV | RAFAEL NADAL | Ernests Gulbis | Maria Sharapova
Rafael Nadal is the real GOAT: 12 GS and H2H Positive w/TOP10 Players.
Dimitrov is not the new Federer. He's Better.

Spoken like a true brainless Nadull-tard, being a fan of a player with a pathetically weak first serve.

Yeah, 135+ first saves are pretty basic.

Brainless Nadull-tards are truly the most despicable fanbase in the entire world.

Re: Janowicz´s serve -how good it is?

His serve has the potential to be good, but it is very often a liability. Sometimes he just hits too many 1st serves out/to the net, which is poor.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.
