140 km/h can be seen often because many players have such shots. Serena, Venus, Henin, Sharapova, Petrova etc. have regularly shots in the region 92 - 98 m/h

Re: Fastest shots?

Angela Haynes as No. 2

Is #10 Pivovarova? Because she doesn't hit hard at all.

Re: Fastest shots?

The power index is useless for including service speed.

Re: Fastest shots?

The WTA had a power index for the first four events of 2009.
------------
The Power Index is the average maximum hitting speed of any player judged by maximum: a) 1st Serve Speed; b) 2nd Serve Speed; c) Forehand; d) Backhand; e) 1st Serve Return; f) 2nd Serve Return; and g) Smash.
*Only calculates players appearing on center court.

2009 CUMULATIVE AFTER FOUR EVENTS

For comparison:
Gael Monfils has the Fastest Forehand ever clocked at 118.1 mph or 190 km/h, against Marcos Baghdatis at the 2007 Australian Open. Although it has been noted by many that Andre Agassi who yields, arguably, the greatest forehand ever, has hit with considerably more "pace" than GaŽl Monfils but was never "clocked" at the appropriate occurrences due to the lack of technological advancement in tennis during Andre's more "prime years" (From:http://www.absoluteastronomy.com/topics/Forehand)

Re: Fastest shots?

Sorana hit a forehand that was around 95mph from right on the baseline vs JJ at the FO which is much more impressive than killing a short ball.

Re: Fastest shots?

Dokic had an amazing backhand in the beginning of the year in Brisbane. I will try to upload it.
