How fast does Jelena serve on a regular basis?

Is her fastes serves in the mid 80's or 90's, or even in the low 100's?

I ask because the Venus we see is clearly not the same Venus we saw her play at the FO, or even the same Venus we saw during the first few rounds of Wimbledon.

The way Venus was returning Ana's and her previous opponents first serves was ferocious.

Venus is gonna kill her serves if she doesn't serve harder. Her serve kinda reminds me of Martina Hingis in a way.

Does she usually serve faster than what I saw on yesterday :eek:

80's to 90's.

This is all estimation (others may know better) but I think JJ's very fastest would be around 110 and her general range on first serve would be 95-105. When she's serving well, she's generally in this range, has a 65-80% 1st serve %, and places the serve well, like Hingis. But it's never a power shot. The 2nd serve is often in the 75-85 mph range.

im not sure what speed she serves at but i think all the matches she has played this year is catching up on her
what worries me the most is that she is thinking shes tired and that she isnt as good as she was a year ago
venus is gonna whup her serve and win the match easily

i think janko is doing a mirza when it comes down to the serve-its in her head now that her serve is weak and that is making it worse

its definetly slower than it was at the start of the year IMO its down to her being tired, apparantly shes cutting down the number of tournys she plays, which is good news for her and the game

and another thing

i know ill probably get a lot of hate for this but hey...
i think she may get fed up of tennis a la clijsters, watching her play, she doesnt seem the same jelena-i know there is more pressure on her now being #3 in the world but she really doesnt look as if she is enjoying it as much as she used to

i hope she doesnt do a clijsters but it does remind me of kims '03 a lot...

I hope she doesn't do a Clijsters! Jelena and Kim are the only 2 women tennis players I've ever really cared about, they can't both quit!

Isn't that Damentieva's serves is the slowest among female players? Can anyone answer my question, thanks.
Also, powerless serves are what is killing Damentieva.

Uhmmm, I think JJ has slower serve than Dementedieva. Though, JJ has more variety in her serve, unlike Elena who always serve to same side
