Venus Williams sets new Wimbledon serve speed record

In the final today

"3.49 pm: Venus holds the seventh game to love. They’ve also corrected the speed of that earlier service to 129 mph – the fastest ever by a lady at the Championships."

Re: Venus Williams sets new Wimbledon serve speed record

And that previous record was at 127 mph by Venus in, I think, 1999... that lasted for a long time. But suddenly the last couple years she's been serving consistently huge bombs in the upper 120's again. I wonder if she changed her technique or training regimen to get that speed back on her serve? It's pretty incredible, because she wasn't serving that big between 2003 and 2006.

Re: Venus Williams sets new Wimbledon serve speed record

I also think she'll definitely reach 130 mph before she retires.
