Sabin Lisicki broke the record for the fastest serve in women’s tennis…
The Wimbledon finalist of 2013, Sabine Lisicki, broke the record for the fastest serve in women’s tennis history today, with this impressive effort being clocked at 131 mph.
The 24-year-old German was taking on Ana Ivanovic in the West Classic in Stanford, and her serve beat the previous record – held by Venus Williams – by 2mph. Despite her serving exploits, Lisicki would go on to lose the match.
The fastest serve in men’s tennis is 163mph which was recorded by Australian Samuel Groth in 2012.
