well i expected this from sam especially with the way lindsay has been playing. same was up 3-1 in the first set and in the second set she was up 5-4 and serving for the set so she had some chances. she does have a big serve but her average first serve dropped a bit in the 2nd set as she lost consistency. in the first set it was more like 112 mph or 113 mph.
i think it may be a bit early to say that she has a bigger serve than alicia. at the moment she does but when alicia was sam's age she also had a serve that big but has slowed it down a bit.
