Re: Who has the best/worst serve?

One name. Volandri.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Who has the best/worst serve?

worst: Berasategui who no longer plays but who had a ferocious forehand that was lethal on clay.

Re: Who has the best/worst serve?

The most effective serve was Sampras's.

The most efficient serve was Kafelnikov's. It looked as if he barely exerted any force and got triple-digit first serves.

The most "elegant" is Henman's.

The most scientific is Roddick's.

The worst serve? Don't know.

Re: Who has the best/worst serve?

Kafelnikov's yeah was He touched the bottom of his back with the tip of his racket, so got huge leverage out of his elbow..
