Re: Top 10 Fastest Serves of All Time (Venus,Serena,Ana,Na,4 Germans)

Some of those look kinda suspicious; i mean, i have never seen Na Li hit a server over 180 kmh or Goerges over 190 kmh; also, i don't think malek can hit such big serves

Re: Top 10 Fastest Serves of All Time (Venus,Serena,Ana,Na,4 Germans)

I find it hard to believe Li Na ever hit a 123 MPH serve

and BSM got robbed of a 130 b/c it was qualifying

julia has a big serve, 190km/h is surely possible, but 203km/h?!

Maybe ErrorNa was in complete ball bash mode and wanted to see how hard she could bash her serve into the court/net/back fence/crowd and it went in

I don´t. I find it hard to believe that somebody like Gajdosova (or even Barthel) has never hit in that range.

Who said they haven't?

Don't forget this WTA stat is just a sample and not a real (comprehensive) record-keeping.

Barthel's fastest serve was 198 km/h according to her own words. But that was in a qualifying match in Luxembourg and the WTA doesn't count that from this tournament.

Malek and Goerges serve speeds are clearly wrong. Malek could serve 180 km/h but not over 190 and Goerges fastest serve is around 190-193 km/h.

Gajdosova has played plenty on big courts with speed guns.

Re: Top 10 Fastest Serves of All Time (Venus,Serena,Ana,Na,4 Germans)

The French Open speed guns are a mess, so it's no surprise all these strange scores are from RG.

The list is complete crap anyway. Venus and Brenda have hit 130, Serena 129 in Charleston 08 and so on.
