Lindsay's serve is not that huge, but she has great accuracy on it

I know for a fact that Monica hit a 110 in the semi last yr. against Capriati in the third set...I have it on tape, so those stats are incomplete...

These serves are only for the Nasdaq event

What about Venus' 127 in Zurich:confused: ? Or are they only counting the ones from Miami?

I don't understand this information, I don't see Vee's 125MPH from the AO. Does it not count because she didn't win the tournament? Anyway, according to AO match stats, she clocked 125:

TWB, this is the fastest serves for MIAMI.;)

Venus actually hit 127, which would be up there if it was for the fastest of all time.

Hmmm, maybe I should have assumed that since it was within the Miami thread, but you never know and since he didn't make that clear I wasn't really certain what it represented.

Thanks for clearing that up for me VF. By the way, how are you doing? :wavey:

Anyone who knows what cind of balls their going to use this year (Tennis balls yess, but what kind?)

I hope Tulyaganova will get more chances to serve this year than last season. She also hit a pretty hard serve against Davenport in AO a 194km/h ace :worship:

I don't get why people are asking about Venus' 127 serve. The first post clearly states: Fastest Serves in Tournament History: Women
