Safin gave a great serving display in the last 2 sets today. But who has had the most effective serve in recent times? For the quality of the second I think my vote goes to Sampras...not a huge surprise i guess. What u all think?

I would have to say Johansson's serve is the best.

Ivanisevic, obviously. Anyone who thinks that Safin or Roddick has better serve did not follow Wimbledon 2001...

Sampras' serve was not as good as Goran's, but he had much better volleys and put-aways, so he was in practice usually more difficult to break.

I'd also like to nominate Wayne Arthurs. Lots of people on the Tour swear that he's got one of the most formidable serves ever.

Yeah Arthurs is a fair shout...not for me though. Goran or Pete? Close call but still pete in my view

Roddick has the best serve followed closely by Ivanisevic.

They're all huge--top three (no order) gotta be Joachim, Roger, & Andy.

you look at the serve at break pts and 2nd serve
Pete hit the spots when it mattered

thats what counts, not hitting aces at 30-0, 40-0 :rolleyes:
even Rusedski can do that.
