It turns out our fans have some skills! So far the boys’ 14-and-under category has seen speeds of over 115 mph, while a 126-mph blast topped the charts in the men’s 15-60 category. The seniors aren’t messing around either: One member of the 61+ crowd came in at 111 mph.

On the women’s side, one 14-and-under participant nailed a serve at 100 mph. In the 15-60 category, a 111 mph blast set the record, while 75 mph is the current mark for the 61+ group. 

How fast can YOU serve? If you’re around the grounds, head to the Citi tent to find out!
