Best Jump Server

  • In another thread we talked about best float server.I think it is time to tell our opinions about the jump serving players.When ı first started to follow volleyball games,ı was quite surprised by the power of jump serve.Receviers have a lot of difficulty in reception of a really strong jump serve.


    And who are the best jump servers?


    Cuba:Cuba is the first NT that comes to my mind when the subject is strong jump serve.Santos,Carcases,Carillo and Barros serve really strong.In Beijing ı watched Santos serve speed was about 103km/h :what:8|
    Russia:Russia have Gamova,Godina and Fateeva whose jump serves are strong too.
    USA:At the moment Logan Tom is the most efficient jump server of the team.
    Poland:ı remember Glinka used to jump serve in 2003 but she stopped it.Skowronska serves strong but she usually prefers float serve.Gajgal and Baranska serves strong too.
    Serbia: Djerisilo,Anja and Nikolic(This season ı observed that Nikolic's jump serve give a lot of trouble to other teams)
    Netherland:Flier and Bloom,They're just perfect.
    Italy:Aguero,Ortolani,Guiggi,Piccinini and Centoni
    China:Yang Hao,Wang Yimei
    Brasil: Sassa,Jacquline,Paola
    Germany:Grün
    Azerbaijan:Guliyeva,Mammadova.Rahimova is said to jump serve strong too.
    Bulgaria:Yaneva
    Turkey:Neslihan Darnel and Eda Erdem are the succesful jump servers of the team.


    Those are the names that ı remember with their strong jump serves.(there may be ones that ı forgot)
    There are many other players.


    Who do you think are the strong jump servers?

  • The best jump servers are Nancy Carillo Dela Paz, Paula Pequeno, Logan Tom, Taismary Aguero, Wang Yimei.


    But a college player from the US named Destinee Hooker should give the players above a run for their money.

    "[size=8]It's years and years of work and sacrifice and dedication. Along with a lot of these girls, we've sweat and we've bled and we've cried together in past Olympics. It just brought tears to my eyes, & I'm more than thrilled. This will be forever." -LOGAN MAILE LEI TOM (Silver Medallist - 2008 Beijing & 2012 London Olympic Games, 2011 World Cup runner up, 2003 & 2007 World Cup 3rd place, 2002 World Champs runner up, 4-time World GrandPrix Champs)

  • Serbia - Brakocevic has a strong jump serve (best server at 2007 ECH)
    Russia - Sokolova
    Italy - Togut when on has a good jump serve
    Belgium - De Carne
    Kazakhstan - Pavlova
    Japan - Shin Takahashi
    USA - Bown and Berg


    I think the best ones now are from the Cubans, Flier, Demir and Brakocevic.


    In the recent past the best were Godina, Gamova, Sokolova, Yang Hao, Barros.

  • Godina, Aguero and Barros are the best jump servers for me. Godina's serves in the WCH06 were just unstoppable, scoring 3-5 aces in each game. Barros and Aguero's serves are sure point-earners, very strong and powerful. I think a lot of Cubans are powerful servers but the problem is that their errors in the serves are higher than their serve aces - causing them to commit millions of errors.

  • best jump servers:
    Carillo,Santos, Neslihan Demir,Eda Erdem,Brakoçeviç,Anna baranska,Aguero,Grün and Nikoliç.
    especially Serbia and Cuba has a big serve power. And Vakıfbank güneş sigorta is very strong at serve place with neslihan,grün and nikoliç.. they get lots of ace in almost every match..

  • Anna Baranska's serves are very strong but unfortunately her way to serve's risky and many of them didn't land in the field.

  • I think the best jump servers are Tom (simply amazing!), Flier (her technique is stunning), Fateeva (so useful for Zarechie at times), Sokolova (just outstanding - first saw her breaking opponent's receiving for several points when she was playing for Foppapedretti), Bednarek (at least in 5-setter with USA in Beijing), Pequeno (great serving in OG in addition to her hitting abilities) and one Thai girl, alas I don't remember her name, but she really pissed off American team with her jump-serving during their qualification for OG match. :lol:

  • I think the best is Flier. She makes me impressed everytime she serves.
    I also like Sokolova's and Godina's serves, but nothing compared to Flier :flower:


    When Metcalf used to serve jumping, I would love too, it was amazing! :heart:

  • I really like Jaqueline and Sheilla jump serves when it comes to Brazil's team.
    As for the US Team, I believe Logan Tom is by far the best. But I have to confess that Berg's jump serves during the OG were simply amazing.
    Wang's serves are very impressive too. Zoila Barros and Nancy Carrilo serves are also terrific.
    Aguero's jump serves also causes lots of trouble to her opponents.
    Regarding the Russian Team, Gamova's, Artamonova's and Godina's are my favourite.

  • I think the best is Flier. She makes me impressed everytime she serves.
    I also like Sokolova's and Godina's serves, but nothing compared to Flier :flower:


    When Metcalf used to serve jumping, I would love too, it was amazing! :heart:



    I agree: Flier has a tremendous power in her jump serves and could place him everywhere she wanted.Amazing to see!

  • In the jump serving competition which is done before the Aroma All Star Game in Turkey Neslihan gor the fastest jump serve award.Grün,Meryem Boz,Erdem and Darnel participated and with 91km/h speed Darnel got the award.


    And about Metcalf she seems to be a good jump server too.Here is a video of her against Brasil in Athens.

  • i think that Cubans jump serve power is incredible .Santos made a huge impresion during OG great jump serve. Flier is also great jump server Brakocevic as well. KUrihara has also very hard to receive jump serve maybe it's not so strong but well placed. as for polish player the best is Baranska( she was the best server of group phase in CL twice in a row :D ) Skowronska used to have very strong jump serve but now she rather use float serve


    Anyone can support a team that is winning - it takes no courage. But to
    stand behind a team to defend a team when it is down and really needs
    you, that takes a lot of courage.

    destinee hooker?



    :lol: :lol: :lol:


    funny, funny name

  • I think the best jump servers are Tom (simply amazing!), Flier (her technique is stunning), Fateeva (so useful for Zarechie at times), Sokolova (just outstanding - first saw her breaking opponent's receiving for several points when she was playing for Foppapedretti), Bednarek (at least in 5-setter with USA in Beijing), Pequeno (great serving in OG in addition to her hitting abilities) and one Thai girl, alas I don't remember her name, but she really pissed off American team with her jump-serving during their qualification for OG match. :lol:

    i think the thai girl is thinkaow pleumjit?

  • the chinese, cuban, and russian team are big servers (and their all socialist-post socialist countries, i wonder how the political system affects a country's serving pattern... geek!)


    anyways, there was this chinese girl #18 in the 2004 olympics, the one with the really bad hair, she averaged at least an ace per set and she was mostly fielded in for service. she played middle blocker in some of the game.
    wang yimei and yang hao are monster servers.


    the gamova-godina-sokolova troika used to serve big during their prime.


    tom's good, yes. but i don't find it too stellar. berg is an underrated server. i think she should be the one credited for usa's silver medal. if it weren't for her, i doubt that usa would have beaten italy. there was even a 12-0 run i think. her serve is just a killer. i have noticed that she serves well even before, but i didn't know she was THAT good until beijing.


    in italy, ortolani has a tough service but it's rather on/off. i much prefer aguero's and guiggi's service where it's not as strong but it's placing and accuracy plus the speed that makes them good servers.


    flier. enough said.


    japan. they have tricky jump floaters.


    cuba. cuba is probably the strongest serving team there is. brazil is not a strong serving team, but it's really consistent. i much prefer the latter

  • Nice point Odin, a team that serves consistently is much more preferable than a team that jump serves powerfully but inconsistently. A lot of points can be wasted by inconsistent serves. Take for example Cuba during the OG semifinal match with the US. Cuba gave up lots of points to the US. I mean they served terribly but still the coach let them continue to jump serve. It was so painful to watch.

  • Anna Baranska had some strong jump serves at the all star game of the Polish Volleyball League. Their serves were very hard and she didn't made lot of mistakes :heart: :heart: :heart:
