The last time i saw that was Fed v Sampras!!!!!!!

wow Venus!!!!!

And a player like Venus doing it! When she gets her timing right on the serve, IMO it's better than Serena's!

Well if you count qualifyings, that was the second fastest serve ever (Brenda Schultz did hit a 131 MPH I think??)

Has anyone seen Venus do that before:)? First time for me! I don't even remember Serena doing that loll

^ I'm not sure I've seen any woman hit four in a row before. Four in a game definitely but not four in a row.

it was incredible. i was like :eek: when I saw that plus next five minutes

YOu can play whatever well you can, but when Venus´s serving like that and playing decently, you have no chance. she just keeps winning her service games and all pressure´s on her opponents.

In rallies, Flavia was amazing!!!

Not really Venus and Serena did it both a few times in the past.

Serena even hit 5 aces in one service game.

I think Mardy Fish did it at Delray Beach a few years ago, and the ATP made a bit of a fuss about it.

Lindsay hit 4 in a row to win a game against Vakulenko in Quebec final last year. ;)

Sam Querrey hit 10 in a row somewhere against Blake.

I saw it. Venus was impressive. Too bad she doesn't serve like this more often.

Yeah, you're right. Indianapolis, maybe?

EDIT: Here are highlights from that match, one of the games with 4 in a row is included. Apparently he hit 10 in a row and 11 out of 12

I'm almost sure I've seen Serena do it watching her live probably 2002 early rounds at the Nasdaq-100.
No doubt Venus serve caught fire midway through the SF, when she plays her best she is serving like this and dominating.

Amazing.
Serena did the same thing against Iva Majoli in an early round in Toronto (Rogers Cup) five or so years ago. But to do it in a final, against one of the top players at the moments, and a player who has beaten you three straight times and obviously knows how to read your serve, is amazing!
Venus' serve paralyzes.

No, they didn't. Serena's hit three aces in a row, and probably five aces in a game, but never four in a row.

Stop making up lies.

She hit three in a row in the Majoli match, I believe. I have it taped.

I like that look actually. Certainly better than Australia/Miami look.


4 aces in a row is very impressive......I am definitely looking forward to seeing what she can do @ YEC........its been too long since we've seen her there!
