I think Antonella. She was only in the 110-120 range, while Zheng was in the 120s regularly.

Actually I can't remember who, but I saw a 80 kph serve on the IBM real time scoreboard! I worked it out and that's 49.9 mph!

Stosur is a fast server but has a long way to go before she is a top player. Venus is in a class of her own among the top players, n'est-ce pas? Most of the other big hitters can serve at about 110 mph when they unleash, or even a bit faster, but Venus is something else.

Nice to see Momo posting a 113 mph serve.

Strangely its not only how fast you hit it that matters.

Which 3 of these players do you think hit more aces in their first round match? Venus, Kim, Ai, Justine, Lindsay, Patty, Alicia, Conchita or Nadia?

And the answer is
