It might've been fault as the stats show that her fastest serve was 116mph.

Ana Ivanović.

It was probably a fault or Tracy Austin and Ted Robinson would be endlessly talking about it.

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Re: Sharapova serves 129MPH - equals world GS serve record speed

that would be really surprising considering I don't think she has ever topped 120

Re: Sharapova serves 129MPH - equals world GS serve record speed

really i dont think she ever served the 126. it seems odd that she can get a 126 or 129 yet she hardly ever get about 117 but if so congrats maria.

IT's not on the stats and it wasn't in so the thread is a bit misleading...

It was a second serve:



Go into the serving stats and change it to Maria Sharapova Second Serves
