AMANMURADOVA, AKGUL (UZB) 196 31 6.32

:worship:
4th for the total number of aces, 2nd (just behind Serena) for the % of aces per match.
If only she was able to improve the others parts of her game...

oh and not surprised to see Serena owning these stats.

I'm not. :lol: Vee is sporadic when it comes to aces/serving these days.:lol:
One minute she'll serve great throughout a match and the next it's :help:

venus often hits more service winners than aces.

Exactly, that's because she serves big all the time but with less focus on placement than Serena

Together with Venus is also interesting Ana Ivanovic case which is between 2005-2007 always TOP5 (if not TOP3) in aces and aces per match, but this season is "nowhere" in that category. This season she not only switch her racquet (from Wilson to Yonex), Ana also completly change her serve strategy, so her fastest serves now is about 180km/h, not almost 200 like in past, and number of aces is totaly down. But on other hand her "1st serve in" percentage grow from 50-55 to 60-65 and her average speed of 2nd serve is faster now so its hard to say that her serve is "worse" now.

Good example is comparing her serve stats from Roland Garros 2007 and 2008 where she in both cases played her season best tennis reaching finals. In 2007 Ana finished RG with most (36) aces than anybody and her fastest serve is 201km/h, but this season she finished with 20 aces and 190 km/h fastest serve - but on other hand last season she at only three (out of 7) RG matches finished with higher 1st serve percentage than 52% and this season only once her "1st serve in" percentage is under 55%!
