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
