Re: Venus 2nd Serve

I noticed today that quite a few of her second serves were going in at 100mph. I just think Vee feels more comfortable in general with her second serve on grass.

Re: Venus 2nd Serve

not new. she was doing it in Memphis in 2007 where I think she played her best match outside of wimbledon in that final. She was avg. 92-94 mph on her 2nd serve all tournament long. And then she played Sharapova in Miami and DF like 13 times and started adding more spin w/ less speed.

Re: Venus 2nd Serve

That's only because she hits her 2nd serve much flatter than most men's 2nd serves. So of course it will be travelling faster than some of the men's slower kick serves, which have great amounts of spin on them, but not as much pace.
