Serena had 100% in the 2nd set of her 2001 USO semi vs Hingis. Only 82% overall for the match though.

Hell, I could see Errani giving Serena all types of hell on clay. Serena is great, but on red clay, ehhhhhhh.
Hingis had 100% first serves in for a set and a half in the 2002 Sydney final against Shaughnessy.
Li had 100% first serves in the first set in the 2007 AO 4th round against Hingis.

This statistic isn't always really a "good" statistic. Players with puffball serves like Errani, Niculescu etc constantly have very high 1st serve percentages. Obviously because they want to just get a first serve in to prevent their abysmal 2nd serve from being completely punished.
