Did anybody else see the 127mph serve by Serena?

It happened in the third game against S. Mirza. If that's true, Rena has joined her sister.

I'm thinking there was some sort of error -- looking at the match stats, Serena's fastest serve is listed as 197 kph (rougly 123 mph). Plus no one even said anything about it, so...

Exactly 127mph back in 1998 (?).

Yeah, they've just updated the event stats...Serena has the fastest serve at 123 mph = 198 kph and is tied with Kuznetsova with the most number of aces so far at 21...she also has the highest winning percentage on the first serve 88%

Serena Williams
Venus Williams
Ana Ivanovic
Tatiana Golovin

I'd believe that. Serena was serving awesome today, she hit so many aces and unreturnables! There was so much spin on her serve too, more than most players. I've never seen such a serve like that live before, even Venus is not as good.
