Classic. But they are all blocking servers you can't use anymore.

I think you should split modern players from the older ones. Waldner was and still is great server, but those days you could hide the ball and the racket, so it was easier to cheat your opponent.
From modern players top 5 in my opinion:
Jun Mizutani
Ma Lin
Kenta Matsudaira
Xu Xin
Dimitrij Ovtcharov

Best servers are Ma Lin and Jan-Ove Waldner, before a few years , when you must not play a serve in which your opponent sees the ball all time, many players had good serves, but now there a only a few players with very very good serves, in which you cannot see which spin is inside.

I only agree on Ma Lin and Kenta with you that they are one of the best modern servers, because Ovtcharov has only one service variation (his backhand service) which is tough to read, Xu Xin hides his service too often, and Jun did copy his service from Ma Lin thats why he is not top five.
My list of the top 5 modern servers:
J.O. Waldner
Ma Lin
Werner Schlager
Kenta Matsudaira
Michael Maze

"Old school" top 5:
J.O.Waldner
Liu Guoliang
Stellan Bengtsson
Zoran Primorac
Jean Philippe Gatien

I have no idea if I agree with your list, but you make a pretty good case for each player (from a very Swedish perspective). But it is an excellent video.

For guys talking about "old school" servers, you have to include Kalinic!!!!!

Of course you could argue that servers like Waldner are one of the prime reasons we are now lumbered with the modern scoring system !

Am I the only one who thinks that Hao Shuai should be in this top 10? I mean... He was obviously not the best player but he was one of the best servers in my opinion.
