With Baltacha getting a recorded serve speed of 119mph, we now have 19 women who have serve speeds of 110mph or more this Wimbledon. Is that standard? How many women got that at Roland Garros?

The grass must be playing really fast this year.....Why would that matter? The serve speed isn't measure after the ball bounces.

Well services speeds are greatly affected by crowd behavior and hygeine.
