Re: Best servers on clay

Soderking and Verkerk were also kinda strong with their serves

Re: Best servers on clay

Soderling had impressive power which penetrated through the dirt. But it's not always reliable. Once he misses the first, he is vulnerable on the second.

Isner has the 2nd serve kicker which is exaggerated even more so on clay, making it almost impossible to return unless you leap like a metre up in the air to get it.

Re: Best servers on clay

If we're talking only about the serve - Isner.

Re: Best servers on clay

Obviously Isner.

Not that there's much merit in what he does.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Best servers on clay

Isner definitely.

But let me say that Nadal has a very good serve on the clay with the spin.

Re: Best servers on clay

When Ernests was "on" in 2010 his serve was pretty impressive.
