: I actually recall a latter 70's article in (I believe) Tennis Week magazine, which documented a WTA serving speed competition in which many of the top women participated in. Indeed, Court did win the contest with a serve that clocked 96 MPH. Others fairly close behind were Navratilova (92MPH?) and I think, Wade. Frankie Durr also participated and surprise, surprise, her serve was too slow to even be measured
During that same period, top speeds for the men were up around 110MPH...
