LA Power Index!

new power index ratings for LA are more shocking even than San Diego
1 Yaroslava Shvedova (RUS) 102.9mph
2 Meghann Shaughnessy (USA) 94.8mph
3 Victoria Azarenka (BLR) 93.9mph
4 Sybille Bammer (AUT) 90.1mph
5 Elena Dementieva (RUS) 89.5mph
6 Michaella Krajicek (NED) 89.3mph
7 Daniela Hantuchova (SVK) 89.2mph
8 Eleni Daniilidou (GRE) 88.6mph
9 Maria Kirilenko (RUS) 87.6mph
10 Dinara Safina (RUS) 87.1mph

Bammer??? Daniilidou???...Shvedova over 100mph??

where is Ivanovic and Petrova???

i'm beginning to doubt the accuracy of this thing

I started to doubt it after I saw Dulko in TOP 5 at Acura

Well, if Ivanovic is not here,then it really is odd...

Exactly. And especially seeing Eleni & Sybille there... sure they're not powderpuff Pin-like, but hey. I don't want to sound biased, but I don't understand how Ana's not there... and Nadia too, she was hitting very hard in the final (I think some serves down the T where faster than any of Ana's).

Ana Ivanović.

Re: LA Power Index!

Some of these positions (i.e. Azarenka and Dementieva) make sense, but it's so odd that Ivanovic, Petrova, and Sharapova failed to make the Top 10

Re: LA Power Index!

Can someone explain me how this device works please? What determines the final speed?

Re: LA Power Index!

The Power Index is the average maximum hitting speed of any player as judged by maximum: a) 1st Serve Speed; b) 2nd Serve Speed; c) Forehand; d) Backhand; e) 1st Serve Return; f) 2nd Serve Return; and g) Smash.
*Only calculates players appearing on center court.

it's been updated folks

1 Shvedova, Yaroslava (RUS) 102.9 MPH
2 Petrova, Nadia (RUS) 97.4 MPH
3 Ivanovic, Ana (SRB) 95.6 MPH
4 Shaughnessy, Meghann (USA) 94.7 MPH
5 Azarenka, Victoria (BLR) 93.9 MPH
6 Mirza, Sania (IND) 93.8 MPH
7 Kirilenko, Maria (RUS) 93.5 MPH
8 Peng, Shuai (CHN) 93.3 MPH
9 Dementieva, Elena (RUS) 92.1 MPH
10 Sharapova, Maria (RUS) 91.0 MPH

Maria Sharapova

Doesn't want the magic carpet ride to end

When I'm alone with only dreams of you that won't come true, WADA I do?

Re: LA Power Index!

much better.

surprised to see peng ahead of sharapova. then again, this isn't exactly reliable.
does anyone know if they count shots that land out?

Im not. I saw some of her matches before. The girl hits hard and flat ... much like Davenport. Only Davenport's stayed in more than not.

Thanks. Too bad it doesn't say anything about average speed. That would be more interesting.

Re: LA Power Index!

I don't think this is accurate I mean if playing Ana is like Playing a man then she'd be up there(no offense) number 1 to be exact and how can Shedova and Shaunessy hit harder than venus when she got overpowered by Mauresmo at the USO last year?
