I think Antonella. She was only in the 110-120 range, while Zheng was in the 120s regularly.

Stosur is a fast server but has a long way to go before she is a top player. Venus is in a class of her own among the top players, n'est-ce pas? Most of the other big hitters can serve at about 110 mph when they unleash, or even a bit faster, but Venus is something else.

Nice to see Momo posting a 113 mph serve.

Strangely its not only how fast you hit it that matters.

Which 3 of these players do you think hit more aces in their first round match? Venus, Kim, Ai, Justine, Lindsay, Patty, Alicia, Conchita or Nadia?

And the answer is

Not suprised. I knew Samantha, Alicia and Evie hit that really hard, anyway.

This might sound weird, but Venus' serves dont seem as fast as they really are... and Capriati and Davenport serves sound like they are going faster than they really are

BTW, how tall is Sam?

HOLD THE PRESSES!
HOLD THE PRESSES!
HOLD THE PRESSES!

There must be a mistake! Alex is not No.1...wait...she is not even on the board! Maybe her serves were so fast that they included her with the men! ;). You know, to be fair to the girls who are not as gifted as Alex!

Sam! Wow. Very impressive. Venus should take her over before the end of the match.

And Justine...question. What is her fastest serve? I thought at the Open last year she was getting like 115 mph?

Well she had a serve in Sydney last week clocked at 187km/h which translates to 116mph. I don't know whether that's her fastest ever, but I'm sure it's pretty damn close to her personal best ;)

Thanks. I thought 113 was a tad slow for her. Like Venus, she's just warming up.

Hmmmm after today cept for Pratty (yay!! :bounce: ) , Sam obviously had a condition problem...she just wasn't there and was hitting out, while Evie reminds me time and time again that she needs a travelling Psychologist...the girl is mental, sad when she has what it takes isn't it?:sad: ...but as was posted before....a big serve is no good, if you are just going to spray the groundie after it.:wavey:

Lindsay only at 169kph :scratch:
I guess she's saving her shoulder a bit

Great to see, that Venus hasn´t lost a step in her absence. Still bombing those big-serves.

Lindsay, shoulder or no shoulder,....no way Amanda should be serving faster than her.

No she didn't.

That's Sam. She's very inconsistant.

I've watched her play over 100 matches. Sometimes she's plays great, other times shithouse like that.
