These are the official records from singles matches at recent slams.
While getting into the Top 20 lists was possible a few years ago with less than 110 miles per hour. Now 110 won't get you in the door. 120s are becoming more common. Curiously the highest speeds seem to be recorded at the French Open, Roland Garros - which is not what would be expected.

This is an older list from the US Open 2006

The number of 120 MPH plus serves is again significantly lower on Wimbledon grass than Paris clay. Why is this? Or is it just a difference in speed gun calibration?
