Owns the fastest serve at all of the slams?

I know she clocked 125 mph at the AO this year, and I thought she clocked 125 at Wimbledon a few years ago (both are records for those tournaments) but I'm not sure about the US Open and the French? Does any know?

127 is her highest, and the fastest in WTA history.

I know she does at 3 of the 4. Only one that I'm not sure about is Roland Garros

well last year at RG venus got the fastest serve at 119 mph and serena was next with 117 mph, so she still serves pretty big there. but i'm not sure about all time.

There is an article on ESPN about serving and speed. According to the article, the speed of the serve is measured at the moment the ball leaves the racquet. That being the case, the surface of the tournament should be irrevalent, hence Venus must have hit a few at the French in the 120's, given her cabability.
