Volandri. Who gets an ace from him on clay is a great and generous player.

Isner is unquestionably the best ever server on clay. He beat Federer, took Djokovic to 5 and was relatively close to beating Nadal at FO with basically an all-serve game (or close to it). His first serve is great but his kick serve is absolutely ridiculous, when he's serving well you basically have to wait for him to miss sitters to win the match, it's almost impossible to get any decent returns in.

Relative to what they do on other surfaces, it's probably Almagro.

Isner's still top dog in general though. Monster serve after monster serve comes down, no matter the surface.

Raonic no matter the surface of course can be added to the players cited below

Sadly I agree with this gimp.
