Exclamation Schnyder the New Holder of the Serve Record!

She served an incredible 211 km/h serve, I didn't know she was a hard server, and she is left handed which makes it even more incredible... This converts to about 131 MPH!!! OMG I can't believe it!!! WOW

Why is it more incredible that she's left-handed?

Do right-handed people have special powers?

im sure it was just a mistake, last night on lindsay's doubles match it said either her or corina served a 224 something like 140miles per hour serve and i know that isnt true even though it would be cool, so im pretty sure it was a mistake

Venus can't catch a good 2nd serve either.

patty's fastest serve is like 186 km/h, which is still one of fastest ever for a women, but i really do doubt that it's a genuine service speed. patty gets everything out of serve that her body allows her, but 211km/h is not within her reach. 211km/h is a pace the vast majority of men can't reach.

It is not sure, since her service speed now tops the leaderboard of the official website. Should it be wrong, it will be removed soon, let's wait and see.
