During her opening round match against Ana Ivanovic in Stanford, Sabine Lisicki served a 131 mph bomb that the WTA tour certified as the fastest recorded woman's serve in history. The former record was 129 mph held Venus Williams.
It was certainly a phenomenal consolation prize since Boom Boom ended up losing the match in straight sets.
UPDATE: Here's Boom Boom's tweet about the record-setting serve. Even she admits it's a pretty good consolation prize:
