Venus Williams set the record.. and she'll be the one to set it again.
<u>Other BIG BOMBERS!!</u><br />Serena Williams ( Her serve is UNEQUALED. Every facet of her serve sets the standard. Her kick serve? Whoaaa! <br />Alexandra Stevenson ( We don't call her the Rocket Woman for nothing. Serves up 2nd serve aces like it ain't nothin'.)<br />Iroda Tulyaganova (Wrist action like a motha'.)
Right now, I don't think anyone is going to break that record soon. No one except for Venus is even hitting serves at 125mph. And Venus hasn't been doing it consistently, so I don't think the record is gonna be broken anytime soon.
Her forehand is full of top spin. But her back hand though... that's really something!! <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" /> <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" /> Good that she is only 20. I thnk she'll crack the top 10! She is amazing!!
VENUS WILLIAMS: Definitely, because she is the hardest hitter on the tour and has the fastest serve! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
SERENA WILLIAMS:her serve is wicked. Like Heavy_Hitta, I luv <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" /> her kick serve! She has excellent wrist action, she is the best serve-brusher on the tour. <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> Wicked! But, if you want a 130 MPH serve, you must hit it flat, and Serena's speciality is the kick one, so I don't think she can overcome the 127, but can approach close (123...)
LINDSAY DAVENPORT: has one of the best placements but not so much power. I wouldn't put money on her <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
Other players I don't know but I have heard of:<br />Alexandra Stevenson, Iroda Tulyaganova, Elena Bovina and Alicia Molik:<br />All tall and strong girls (except Iroda) who have good serves. The only player I saw on TV was Iroda, and I can't remember her serve very well, only her forehand, which is great. I'll try to watch them, and see if they deserve all this hype <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
I think Lindsay has one of the best serves on tour but I don't think she will break it or even come close to the 120 mph mark - that's just not her style. She has a powerful serve but placement and spins (especially the slice serves - love the slider down the T on the ad court) are what make her serve more effective, not just power.
