On Tuesday, July 29, 2014, during a first round match at the Bank of the West Classic in Stanford, CA, against opponent Ana Ivanovic (EZONE Ai 98), Lisicki hit a serve that registered 131 mph, the fastest recorded serve speed in history, as confirmed by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) and SMT/IDS (SportsMEDIA Technology Information Display Systems).
Former Wimbledon finalist and winner of three WTA events, 24-year-old Lisicki has been playing with VCORE Tour 97 and POLYTOUR SPIN strings since 2012.
“It’s an honour for me to achieve a Guinness World Records title for the fastest serve. I have worked very hard on my serve from a young age on and it’s great to be recognized for it. My serve is a weapon I like to use and I will continue to work on making it better and YONEX continues to help me improve my game to new levels,” said Lisicki.
