For someone built like her she should be racking up speeds in the 110-120mph range.

If she had a reliable serve she'd be an Olympic gold medalist and likely have a slam by now. I still think she'll pull it together and win a FO.
I can't imagine how bad her coaching must be where nobody said "oh, you are like 6 foot 3 and you have a terrible serve. maybe we should do something about that."
