(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**

Why would the serve NOT be considered a world record?

I doubt thats right
She got a 211 kph serve but only averaged 146 kph for her first serve! Something wrong with the speedo. They even clocked Amanda Coetzer at 191 kph!

Broken radar gun? Nah. I doubt it. We've got the world's greatest
technology at this year's Australian Open. Why, look at how wonderful
the official web site is.

i think you are getting excited for no reason. and i guess u can say w/ reason. u may not be used to the AO jacked up numbers this year. this is their "lowest" year in terms of stats etc. the scoreboard was just pitiful. i remember watching the venus/doucheivna match with the scoreboard, and it flahsed that Vera clocked one at 197 km/h. now if that doesn't say ERROR if you have seen the girls serve, i don't know what is. and to hear Amanda Coetzer so high etc, you possibly cannot believe this.

And mention that also, when the serve speed is borken it becomes NEWS, its not just a thing, or just b/c its a williams sister. it would have been in Articles about pattys win had she hit one at 131 km/h.

This Thread points up something maddening about the IBM Live Scoreboard applet box you can open in the corner of your screen. It gives the (obviously Suspect) Speed of the last serve, but does NOT say If It went in. Only when UC a lower speed B4 the next score change Is It saying "Out" re. the first one (which of course doesn't count re. speed records, anyway).

It IS NOT POSSIBLE, Patty hitting a serve at 211Kmph. It's not the first time it happens, Patty clocking a serve at that speed, it happened at last year's USO I think or in 2002. But there's no way in hell that is right, it must have been an error because... Well, have you seen Patty serve?! She hits with so much spin, she has a good serve, but a slow one.

She didn't beat Schiavone's record of 151 MPH that the AO site told us about earlier in the week
