Partly that but also the technology - its the same Mary hitting it now as in 1994. . Mary and Patty would have been pleased to hit it 14 mph slower only 8? years ago? Frightening thought - imagine playing Graf or Mary in 1994 hitting at the speeds Mary can hit today........

it's been said alot - and i'll still say it -
steffi can hit a 185 easy if you give her today's raquet.

but nice to see more pressure in the top for the highest speeds :)

It's amazing how it is many of the younger girls who are coming up with the really big serves. It would seem that serving big is something that is being emphasised in the tennis academies now, for the benefits of all the free points to be gained on serve.

Regarding Masha. She appears on the Ace top table, but not on this one. She seems to have been concentrating more on improving her movement than her serve this winter.

It's not sad because when you've suffered a serious abdominal
injury as Venus has it's no wonder. She said in Antwerp she felt
a little something with her stomach but nothing major.

Besides, she can and still does serve big.

She reach 123 at a couple months ago at Amelia Island
and against Davenport in that QF match she was hitting
consistently in the 120 range for most of the 1st set.

So, simply at her discretion and how she feels
on any given day I take it.

I think both sisters serve better when they take down the mps, especially Serena since she can place it a lot better when she serves between 110-115.

Stosur was doing quite well in the Mixed, I noticed. having a serve like that is a great advantage. She didn't lose her serve while I was following the score of her Semi-final match. Unfortunately Hanley, her partner did - several times, and they went out to Paes and Navratilova

She and Scott Draper took the Mixed title at the Australian Open

Jidkova :eek: :eek: She was serving constantly at like 132 in Quebec city during her whole run! And the fact she played only one match against Cornet, i would be surprised if that serve was real. We enver know what frustration can do though :p
