I never knew Tina Pisnik could serve that fast. Did she always or has she been working on that?

What's Amelie's fastest? I'm surprised it's not on that list.

She must be building up her power. She outhit Elena in a big way on serve according to the stats.

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

Yes but let's not forget that Venus is injured. Please remind us of this fact every two seconds so we don't forget it when she loses. Excuses excuses, let's find a professional athlete who doesn't have some sort of ailment.
