Wow ... has this stat been discussed ...

... I was just checking the match statistics for the Venus/Sharapova match. For the ENTIRE match, Venus averaged a 1st serve of 115 mph. First of all, that has to be a record for women's tennis.

If I was Sharapova, my cry would be, "how could you expect me to win having to battle a serve like that."

I pray Venus has two more matches like that in the next couple of days!!!

Re: Wow ... has this stat been discussed ...

well its not just that! She had actually a very high 1st serve percentage! 114 mph with 10% 1st serve percent wont be impressive enough btju I think her percent was more than 70 now THAT is impressive!

I thought at the 2001 US Open, she had a higher average first serve speed than Andre Agassi.

Re: Wow ... has this stat been discussed ...

Maria said in her post match interview that she didn´t get a look in on Venus´ serve because she was averaging 115 mph. She also said that Venus was just too good.

She also hit a serve that was near her fastest serve record, just two miles under it.

Re: Wow ... has this stat been discussed ...

For those that might not know, first serve speed is ONLY COUNTED when it goes in. Faults are not counted.

If faults were counted, Venus top speed would be 130-135MPH.

Another amazing stat is that Sharapova's serve, which is aparrently one of the biggest in the game, fastest speed in that match was 115mph...exactly the same as venus' average...amazing..

Re: Wow ... has this stat been discussed ...

amazing stat, but let's not forget that if it wouldn't have been for 1 more game (twice!), there wouldn't have been a Williams - Sharapova match

Re: Wow ... has this stat been discussed ...

Don't neglect the fact that she hit a 126mph ace as well. Average was slower today around 110mph..

Quote:
I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.
