Serve speed records

http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/n...256076_1978722

All Time:

RANK NAME MPH KPH TOURNAMENT
1 Venus Williams (USA) 129.0 207.6 2007 US Open
2 Serena Williams (USA) 127.0 204.3 2006 Cincinnati
3 Brenda Schultz-McCarthy (NED) 126.0 202.7 2007 Indian Wells
4 Anna-Lena Groenefeld (GER) 125.0 201.1 2009 Indian Wells
5 Ana Ivanovic (SRB) 124.9 201.0 2007 French Open
6 Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) 124.3 200.0 2009 French Open
7 Sabine Lisicki (GER) 124.0 199.5 2008 Cincinnati
8 Amélie Mauresmo (FRA) 123.1 198.0 2009 French Open
9T Laura Granville (USA) 123.0 197.9 2003 Memphis
9T Alexandra Stevenson (USA) 123.0 197.9 2003 Memphis
9T Sarah Taylor (USA) 123.0 197.9 2003 Memphis
9T Carly Gullickson (USA) 123.0 197.9 2003 Memphis

9T Lucie Hradecka (CZE) 123.0 197.9 2010 Indian Wells

I find it peculiar that 4 of the top 10 happened at the same tournament to all Americans and are identical in speed.

Re: Serve speed records

Stevenson couldnt serve that fast could she? anyways i think this list is wrong, because Venus hit her fastest serve at the French Open......I remember cause she didnt pay attention the next point because of it.... And I feel like Serena got a 128 last year....

Venus Ebone Starr


Serena Williams

Sharapova

Hantuchova

That list is wrong, also did not Brenda hit a 130 mph delivery and got back the record briefly not too long ago, which Venus also matched then in 2008??

Gabriela Sabatini 2006 HOF

Seasons in the top ten: Sabatini 10 Conchita 9
Straight Seasons in the top ten: Sabatini 10 Conchita 6
Seasons in the top 5: Sabatini 6 Conchita 5
Straight seasons in the top 5: Sabatini 6 Conchita 4
Tier II and above titles
Sabatini 24 Martinez 17
Record at the Masters
Sabatini has 2 titles 2 Runner up and 3 SF
Martinez has 0 titles, 0 RU, and 0 Sf
Record against the best players
Sabatini 40% Martinez 21%

I was thinking the same thing. Brenda hit the serve in Cincinnati qualifying and Venus matched it at 2008 Zurich. This list is a tad outdated. Whoever put this list together didn't pull it from the right place. Weird, though, that 2009 events are on here, so why would they ignore Venus' Zurich ace? And Brenda's Cincinnati qualifying serve.

Serena 129mph QF Charleston 2008 against Maria Sharapova.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

well they only include Main Draw matches in the list so the qualies wouldnt be on there, but yeah thats why i said it was wrong cause they had SOME 2009 results, but I knew Serena had gotten pretty close to it herself last year...... Also why are the 123 people even on there? I mean if its fastest serves.....should the top numbers by Brenda/ Serena/ Venus make up the top ten since they can hit 123 regularly?

Venus Ebone Starr


Serena Williams

Sharapova

Hantuchova

I guess Bali's serve speeds from last year were incorrect/unverifiable. Sabine hit 129 there and Sam had one close to that also.

Or the WTA researchers are just lazy.
