Ok, I need to know, what is Venus' fastest serve (and record speed for the WTA)? I can only find it being 129mph, but I thought she hit a 130mph back in the fall when she hit like 4 aces in a row against Pannetta?? If this is true, can anyone show me like a link?

You can find it on youtube. IIRC, Venus did finally hit 130 in Zurich. Serena also hit a 129 in Charleston, but the WTA doesn't seem to credit her for that. I'm not sure why they credit/don't credit certain things.

Yes it annoyed me too, because she hit 130mph and isn't credited with it.

After the match, it was someone on here that said she had hit 130. Nobody else knew, so it was the word of one person. I found no news articles, there was no reaction from Venus (both of which happened when she hit 129 @ RG). And as far as I have seen, no video showed the serve speed of any of the four aces. I don't think she did...

As for Serena, she did, without doubt, hit a 129 (it wasn't a cock-up by the machine)
