i remember one humorous time when me and my coach were playing doubles against two of my team mates. i was serving, and on this occasion i was really gonna go all out for a serve. i think i hit the ball as hard as i possibly could, and it just so happen that i hit my coach......... in the neck!!!! it was probably the most embarrassed i've ever been on a tennis court. luckily, i wasn't kicked off the team ;)

Yeah, I would see why Daniela would get injured.....Mary hits extremely hard..especially indoors......and as for someone running from Venus' overhead....who could blame her......I would too.

Kuznetsova hit some French girl in a doubles match once.

Stefan Edberg killed someone with his serve, IIRC.

Roddick nailed Sampras, Fish and I'm sure a couple of others with 1st serve body serves.

yeah the main one that comes to mind is Mary Pierce smashing the crap outta Hantucova which ended up with internal bleeding...
but i remember watching a medibank internationl (it was the Adidas Open then) when Hewitt smacked Magnus Norman right where the sun don't shine...he was down for a while in a lot of pain...

Nadal at the '04 US Open looked painful. It bounced into Nadal's head.

I remember a match from Filderstadt 2003 during which Mary and Cara both hit at each other once quite hard!
There's also a match between Serena and Mara in Wimbly last year if I remember well. Both players were at the net, and Serena hit very strong directly on Mara. That was amazing! And dangerous!:mad:
I also remember a doubles match in Paris GDF in which Nathalie Dechy hit very strongly at a ball on Nadia Petrova who took minutes to recover!
I also know about the Mary-Daniela thing, but there is no picture, right? So I assume Mary did not do it on purpose, not the kind of thing she does, despite what some Dani fans said at that time! :rolleyes:

The Mary-Daniela incident is an obvious choice. Poor Dani had to pull out of a few events after that, but it was just an accident, no way would Pierce hit an opponent on purpose, especially not in doubles.
Another incident I remember is from 98 San Diego semifinal between Mary and Hingis. Martina hit a drop shot to bring Mary to the net and then tried to lob her, Mary extended her arm and smashed the ball right back and hit Martina in the face. Must've been painful.

Naw, lol Mary didn't try to hit her deliberately, there are pics floating about from immediately afterwards and Mary looks upset about hitting Dani who is doubled over on the other side with Ai. it was a total accident and more a mess up of timing by Dani than Mary deliberatly going for the body shot like some other players....still would have hurt something crazy
i remember a ballgirl getting smashed in the face by a Greg Rusedski serve...it was in the news, she ended up needing a nose and cheek reconstruction:eek:

Sprem accidentally hit a ballgirl pretty hard against Nicole at Wimbledon last year. :o
And Lendl hit McEnroe very hard in the stomach, and McEnroe was on the floor for ages. :o He was glaring at Ivan, who didn't even apologise. :lol:

i rember watching sammy play in dubs at aussy open, was the 3rd rnd or smthing, and i cnt rember who they were playing, but sam hit the grl in the shoulder pretty hard, she was ok an the grl looked annoyd, then not long after sam hit a over head smash and got the grl wright in the face,

it was pretty hard to, the grl was out and in tears, sam lookd worried for a secound, then after a minute or 2, she was bck into playing, the whole game this grl could not return any of sams shots cause they were to hard to hit back =p

a couple of games later the chick that got hit, hit sam back and sam was sam and brushed it off. =p pretty interesting game

I remember a few years back on the Wimbledon practice courts I was watching Venus practice some serves. Her mum was in a wheelchair at the time and one of Venus' serves smacked her right in the face! :o

:eek: I didn´t know players and other people could get hurt this badly.
I used to think that Serena´s ´nosevolley´ at Wimby final 2004 was one of the worst :o

Yes, it was a line judge at the 1983 US Open. Edberg's serve hit the judge in the groin and the poor chap died of internal bleeding. Edberg was mortified and went to the guy's funeral.

i was at the zurich open last year and i watched the doubles match with hantuyama vs. i think it was pierchy. so, daniela hit a short ball and pierce wanting to hit a passing shot put tremendous power into the shot and bamm she hit daniela. it was really fast i'm telling you. now pierce was looking at the ball all the time to make sure she would hit it right. it wasnt her fault. and believe me i am no pierce fan, so.

I cracked a really hard overhead into an opponents 'groin area' during the state tourney last year. I didn't really mean to, but it sent him to the ground for a while... I won 6/1 6/0 :devil:

The guy died though because he fell backwards and hit his head and it was cranial bleeding that he died of not from the actual tennis ball damage.

One of my regular tennis partners/opponents got nailed in the back of the head by his brother when we were playing doubles once. He's a former Football Defensive Lineman and he actually dropped to the ground in pain (not knocked out but seeing stars :lol: )

His older brother ran over to "apologize" but the big smile on his face sort of cancelled out the words coming out of his mouth...

...that was 4 years ago and none of us have every played doubles with his brother again :scared: :tape:

I forget which Australian Open it was, but Venus v. Pratt .. and Venus NAILED Pratt in the neck with an easy forehand at the net. It was brutal.
