Default Who´s serve is worse between Cilic and Tomic?

I´ve been laughing at this 2 guys some time, they are tall guys with potential but their WTA serves are big joke. Hanescu can be mentioned here too among tall guys with WTA serve, but i will compare those 2 so what do you think?

Default Re: Who´s serve is worse between Cilic and Tomic?

tomic's serve should get better with time.

his problem is that hes too skinny but with age he should gain more muscle mass. something like that happened with del potro and his serve improved a lot.

that said, much like del potro, tomic's serve will probably never be a weapon according to his height but it should be decent enough.

Default Re: Who´s serve is worse between Cilic and Tomic?

I'd say Tomic on average.

But when it comes to a 2nd serve on setpoint, at least Tomic will generally get it over the net.

Tomic and it's not even close.

Cilic used to serve better than that (up to 135 mph) when he arrived around 2007-2008.

Default Re: Who´s serve is worse between Cilic and Tomic?

Cilic's might look worse but is at least sometimes effective. Tomic's is attackable even on first serve (though not as poor as Hanescu).

Default Re: Who´s serve is worse between Cilic and Tomic?

I actually I agree that Tomug could potentially improve his serve in the future... Mugrin, however, has a horrendous technique that not only allows him to serve at 50% on a good day, it also ensures that he'll most likely have serious back issues later on in his career.

Yeah, Marin's serve is a back breaker.

Cilic has a bad serve for his height, not necessarily a bad serve.


Tomic has a bad serve for ANY height. Hope that answers your question.

As for the second serve, Cilic has a really good one.

On first serve, I think Tomic's gesture has more potential.

I wonder why Cilic bends back so much when serving, without bending backwards, he could hit higher. Wouldn't that make the serve faster?
