Mistake stat?

According to this page Schnyder hit a 239 KMH serve!

http://2003.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/s...13/0368ms.html

Must have meant 139?

Or maybe one of the ballkids accidently gave her a ball intended for Kournikova, with "I love you Anna!" written on it. That might have "inspired" Patty's serve.

Venus has the record at 127 mph...what's the conversion into kilometers?

Off the top of my head, I'd say ~201.6 KPH (using a 5 to 8 ratio). That would put Patty's alleged serve around 150 MPH.

sorry, but why did this topic need a thread? It's a very minor error and it's obviously wrong.
