who will break the record of venus' 127 mph serve?

correct me if i'm wrong, but venus served a 127 mph bomb in 1998.

it is now 2006.

the racquet technology has improved tremendously; look at hingis, now throwing in an occasional 110 mph bomb, whilst maxing out at around 100 mph before her first retirement. the number of girls who can serve 110+ has improved dramatically; now, nearly every top 20 player has the capability to do so. certainly, the quality of service among the tour as a whole has been the most obvious improvement of the last few years.

yet, nobody has come close to breaking venus' record. not even venus herself.

who will do it? a young girl like vaidisova, ivanovic? or none of the current top players, but instead someone who has yet to make their mark on the game?

Serena served 129, 128, and 130 at 2004 WTA Champs final that were out by inches.
She hit a 126 ace at 2004 Wimbly 3rd Round (and Venus' serve was 127 btw)

Serena's come the closest. If she's healthy, come the USO and the fast indoor court season, she should break it some time soon.

I don't see anyone else besides Serena coming close anytime soon. Kuznetsova is really the only one that comes close in terms of leg strength (the source of power on serves), but her service motion isn't conducive to big bombs...so who knows....

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

Honestly, Serena and Svets realistically seem like the only ones with a shot

It's obviously hard to break.

I think it will be a young player, someone who likes to come out & just try to hit the hell out of the ball, which is kind of how Vee was when she set the record. She has said something to that effect herself. Someone strong like Ivanovic or Kuznetsova maybe...

Kuznetsova hit a 126 MPH at the 2004 USO, very close

I think Venus herself may even break it. Other players who might are Sharapova or Ivanovic. Also, Nicole has a strong serve, and Alex said she hasnt even started weight training so it will only get bigger. I think it may be broken sometime within the next couple years.

NICOLE VAIDISOVA

Dokic - Hantuchova - Zakopalova - Minella - Szavay - Bammer - Safarova
Stanciute - Panova - Gubacsi - Cibulkova - Cirstea - Hofmanova - Cetkovska

If Brenda was a little bit younger, she would probably do it. The fact that she served 124 mph back in the 90s is amazing. With today's racquets she would have broken 130.

And her serve is still one of the best in women's tennis.

when brenda broke the record for the fastest serve in women's tennis (pre-venus), martina hingis returned it - for a winner
