Stosur sets new serve record? (208 Kph)

Has this been posted yet? It's Pending verification.


"Stosur thunderbolt fails to unsettle Martinez Sanchez
1 hour, 36 minutes ago
By Barry Wood

BALI, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Second seed Samantha Stosur fired down a WTA Tour record 208kph serve but a 7-6 7-5 defeat by Spaniard Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez eliminated the Australian from the Tournament of Champions on Friday. Stosur’s thunderbolt eclipsed the previous best of 207.6 kph held by Venus Williams. The WTA said the record was pending verification."

Really? Why do I remember it being in the 220s?
I am pretty sure that serve vs Ashley wasn't Vee's fastest though. She thought so too, but appeared she had hit a faster one before.

Oh no it's definetely a new record. Venus Williams hit a 128 mph one (206km/h). Brenda still holds the absolute female record at 130mph, even though it's not a maindraw match.

Re: Stosur sets new serve record? (208 Kph)

I thought Venus hit 207.6 or something in 2009? A match against Pennetta if I'm not mistaken?



• Maria Sharapova • Dominika Cibulkova • Eugenie Bouchard • Garbine Muguruza •
• Andy Roddick • Mikhail Youzhny • Grigor Dimitrov • Novak Djokovic •
