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'.)

Venus, Lindsay, Serena, Jenn and some surprise like Bovina will all beat it next year. New record, 130 mph.

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.

Anything above 122 is really a fluke for Venus. She can hit them as fast as 130-135, but they never go in.

For Serena and Lindsay, they have such fluid motions and excellent serves that for them to serve faster would mean a decrease in effectiveness, so I don't look for them to break the record.

Venus, like I said above, has the best chance to break it, but it would be a fluke. Tulyaganova or maybe Bovina could do it as well, but when you get to those speeds, you aren't very accurate.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Iroda very short.... around Martina's height maybe? How does she serve so fast??! <img src="eek.gif" border="0">

She's around 5'8 but Iroda just has very good timing and rhythm on her service motion.

<br /> Give them rarified air in the desert on a calm day and that record could go.

*Indian Wells could be the place

That's really fast for such a small girl!! But then she is a rather atheletic looking woman. Is she 19 or 22? She plays like a clay courter.

Iroda will be 20 in January.

She really prefers the faster stuff , everyone including herself was suprised she won those 2 back 2 back titles on clay.

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!!

Hii

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">

See ya!

Elena Baltacha could bt it easily. She had the 2nd fastest serve at wimbledon this year (118mph) faster then serena and 1mph behind venus and she only playe 1 round.

Her best is i believe 123mph.

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.
