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?
