Re: What is the fastest women's serve ever?

Schultz-McCharty could only serve extremely hard and had some half-decent volleys.
She recorded a 123mph serve in 1990 with the old radar system. Boris Becker's fastest serve was 125 mph that year.

Re: What if Tennis fans were like Hockey fans?

Field Hockey is huge in the Netherlands for some reason. Bandy exists there too apparently and "ice hockey" (= hockey).

Re: What if Tennis fans were like Hockey fans?

They call "field hockey" "hockey" in some parallel universes and it often attracts the same people as tennis.

It wouldn't make that much difference.

Re: Paralympics SF: Esther Vergeer def. Jiske Griffioen 60/63. '469 matches in a row'

If you want her to lose during the next major you'll need the same winner's check as in wta tennis.

Re: Life on the ITF Circuit - Anne K's Top 5 Travel Disasters

Right on.
A few Dutch journeywomen were almost shot in Mexico a few years ago if I remember it well.

Re: Interesting: Russian woman made finals of all but Wheelchair at AO12

I think the Dutch should invent wheelchair squash, another way to dominate the sportsworld.

Re: Vergeer defeats Van Koot; 6-0, 6-0!

The Dutch tennis players of her generation were terrible (only Tamaela made the top 200).
Maybe she would have rivalled Michelle Gerards.
