I think Pam was exaggerating because I don't think there is any technology on Court 2 to measure that. However, that was F***ING HARD! :worship: Then again...Monfils and Gonzo hit at that speed and Serena is not that strong. :o

and Pam's reaction was priceless. :haha: "I AM SICK OF THIS COURT!!!!!"

That forehand! :eek: Remember watching it but on youtube, it looks even faster than I remembered.

I am sure Lady Pierce has the record, though. Some of her forehands in Paris were incredible.

For everyone wanting to know what time, it is the second point of the video...right after she double faults.

Loved Pam's reaction though! And I agree I think we have seen Serena and Pierce hit harder forehands, although this one was mighty impressive.

Pam's "Czech this out!" was just as good as the forehand. :lol:

I dont think so. This fh had 85 kg Serena and a whole lot of anger behind it. Plus it was hit flat and right in the sweet spot.

yeah but both Ana and Mary have a better "arm" and I saw them hit better/faster fh than this one (not to say Serena's one isn't massive)

AWESOME power. I don't think I've seen a bigger shot from a woman at RG.
Thank goodness that girl got out of the way. :tape:

That's what I was thinking! She's stepped to the right quickly in order to get out the way, she didn't even try to do anything to the ball lol

THE Serena FH was against Justine @ the 2003 FO in the first set. Justine up 5-2 serving @ 40-15.

The doubles forehand looked harder, it literally was a blur in the screen, you saw it when it was hit and then on the other side of the net. :lol:

The RG 09 forehand is much much harder than the 2003 one. Like very obviously.

On slow motion looks like JJ's fastest forehand in normal speed. :lol:

If Serena can do that for for half an hour per match, she'll win every match. Her power is so intimidating. :)

Huge, but I'm sure Pierce has hit a harder forehand during her many great runs at Roland Garros.

One of the biggest shots I remember vividly was the Wimbledon quarterfinals between Pierce and Venus. Second set I believe it was during their insane tie-break and Mary smacked the utter hell out of a backhand crosscourt and Venus was still able to get to it and eventually won the point. Just the sound that came off of Mahree's racquet when she hit that backhand is enough to make the hair on your neck stand up.:erm::scared:

It was beautiful!! Mary hit that backhand SO hard, and Venus got it back and forced Mary to miss her backhand swing volley long. Venus had the most intense fist pump and jubilation after that point too, the most pumped up I've ever seen Venus get.

for those who said mary was harder, imagine if it was on a hardcourt or grass court where mary hit hers from. thats pretty hard and fast on a claycourt.

As far as backhand is concerened Serena hit one against Lindsay during the 2003 family circle cup. It was a return and it was just a laser. I mean Lindsay has a great serve but to hit a return that hard with a BACKHAND lol! I wish someone could upload it! haha I used to have it taped btu I lost the tape lol. I remember ESPN showed a close up when she hit it, all you could hear was a loud *THUMP*! Lol
