Is this true?

I am a new member and I like this forum becuase the posts are so juicy. I was watching the twenty best Wimbledon finals last night on ESPN and one of the matches they chose was the '04 Wimbledon final. They said that Sharapova hit return winners over 100 miles per hour. Is this true? Would that make her the hardest hitter on the women's tour? My favorite players are the Williams sisters; have they done this?

Many people have probably done this. Maria is no where near the hardest hitter on tour. She is up there but not the hardest. I would say Mary hits the ball the hardest.

Yes Maria hit a 125MPH return. In that tournament, SF and F, Maria hit harder than any woman I've ever seen. However, since that Wimbledon, she hasn't hit as hard as consistently.

It's totally true but no she is not the hardest hitter.

SERENA WILLIAMS

Serena, Venus and Pierce all have definitely done this before. I wouldn't say that Sharapova is the hardest striker of the ball. She is definitely up there though. I would probably say that she, Pierce and Lindsay are probably most consistent at hitting it hard, but once in a while Serena cracks a ball that's about as hard as all of them combined (Pierce, Lindsay and Sharapova)

Antonella Serra-Zantetti is by the far the most powerful player on tour. Her serve has been recorded at speeds over 125 kpm
