New serve speed record for Justine?

http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/sc...19/2127ms.html

194 km/h
120,5 mph

Average 1st serve speed is also insane:

178 km/h
110,6 mph

ivanovic, stosur, henin-hardenne all hit a 194 to be the fastest servers. justine's avg is the highest probably tho.

178 is actually 111.25 mph.

Well speed doesn't do any good if your 1st serve % is low. And we know that Justine first serve % is not her forte
I haven't seen the stats yet but I think she served pretty consistently today.

she got 56% of her 1st serves in and won 83% of those pts. Her second serve winning % was 50% so I think these are very good percentages considering that her AVERAGE first serve speed was over 110 mph.
